To commit your hospital to the Healthy Food in Health Care Pledge, either download the pledge and follow submission instructions OR submit the online form at the bottom of this page.
This Healthy Food in Health Care Pledge is a framework that outlines steps to be taken by the health care industry to improve the health of patients, communities and the environment.
As a responsible provider of health care services, we are committed to the health of our patients, our staff and the local and global community. We are aware that food production and distribution methods can have adverse impacts on public environmental health. As a result, we recognize that for the consumers who eat it, the workers who produce it and the ecosystems that sustain us, healthy food must be defined not only by nutritional quality, but equally by a food system that is economically viable, environmentally sustainable, and supportive of human dignity and justice. We are committed to the goal of providing local, nutritious and sustainable food.
Specifically, we are committed to the following healthy food in health care measures for our institution.
Your facility or system will be listed on our website with other pledge signers. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
