GOOD FOOD IS GOOD MEDICINE

As places of health and healing, hospitals are well positioned to provide food that promotes the well-being of both people and the environment.  California hospitals are leading the way by committing to sustainable foods like pesticide-free produce; antibiotic-free meats; and local, seasonal meals for patients, staff, and visitors. 

One-quarter of hospitals across California participate in the Healthy Food in Health Care Program,* which harnesses the purchasing power and expertise of the health care sector to advance a sustainable food system.

Please join us to learn details about the many ways these 127 facilities are revolutionizing food service. Out of 85 facilities that responded to our 2013 survey:

  • 91% purchase local and/or sustainable foods and beverages
  • 78% have a meat reduction and sustainable meat procurement program
  • 78% have a healthy, sustainable beverages program

Hear about successes and challenges from participating hospitals, and learn about the innovative Hospital Leadership Team model that unites hospitals' purchasing power and knowledge to create positive food system change.

This webinar is for anyone interested in sustainable food systems and farm-to-institution models.
