Health Care Culinary Contest - Partner social media guide

The contest’s influence

Health Care Culinary Contest

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 win a trip to be recognized at CleanMed Orlando. Last year’s Health Care Culinary Contest champion’s dish from Norbert Bomm of Northwestern Memorial Hospital went on to be adopted by more than 750 hospitals across the country.
