Whether you work in a hospital food service or are a clinician or other health professional you can take action to support healthy and sustainable food. Advocating for public policy, supporting hospital foodservice operations in making a public commitment to Healthy Food in Health Care, and building sustainable foodservice operations are great ways to get involved.
The Healthy Food in Health Care Pledge, launched in spring 2006, is a framework that outlines steps to be taken by the healthcare industry to improve the health of patients, communities, and the environment.
Health Care Culinary Contest
The Health Care Culinary Contest is an opportunity for clinicians, hospital food purchasers, and chefs to connect to create a recipe that expands our definition of protein and recasts its role on the plate. The winner will be honored at the 2018 CleanMed Conference in San Diego, Calif.
HFHC holds regional, national, and virtual forums and events to educate and inspire change.
Make your voice heard on public policy to build a healthy and sustainable food system by participating in our current Action Opportunities. Health professionals can leverage their knowledge about and commitment to protecting public health and influence elected officials to support sustainable food policies through sign-on letters, testimonials, and legislative visits.
