The contest’s influence

The Health Care Culinary Contest provides hospital chefs and health care culinary professionals a national platform to change the way people think about hospital food through innovative, plant-forward, sustainable, and budget friendly recipes.

By entering the contest, participants get the chance to gain some celebrity in the culinary world and be recognized in Health Care Without Harm’s culinary contest celebration and at CleanMed 2022. Last year’s Health Care Culinary Contest champion’s dish was from Noriel San Pedro of Stanford Health Care who went on to be featured at the Culinary Institute Of America’s Menus of Change conference.
