Healthy Food in Health Care Pledge



In healthcare facilities across the country there is a growing awareness that our food system is misaligned with U.S. dietary guidelines. Behind these nutritional imbalances is a food system largely reliant on methods of production and distribution that negatively impact public and environmental health. 

The Healthy Food in Health Care Pledge, launched in spring 2006, is a framework that outlines steps to be taken by the health care industry to improve the health of patients, communities, and the environment.

Hundreds of hospitals and Food Service Contractors across the United States have signed the Healthy Food in Health Care Pledge to demonstrate their commitment to "first, do no harm” and treat food and its production and distribution as preventive medicine.

By signing the Healthy Food in Health Care Pledge, facilities and food service contractors are demonstrating leadership and sending an important signal to the marketplace about their interest in local, nutritious, sustainable food and modeling healthy food practices for patients, staff, and visitors.
