Healthy Food in Hospitals
Could this become a trend?
Few places have a worse reputation for food than hospitals. There is a growing trend, however, to not only make hospital food more nutritious, but to source food locally. Some hospitals are even growing food and hosting farmer’s markets.
Fletcher Allen Health Care in Burlington, VT participates in the Healthy Food in Health Care Matters Program. Fletcher Allen aims to have the most sustainable health care food service in the country to improve the health of patients, customers and the community by providing fresh, local and sustainable food. Fletcher Allen created a rooftop garden to grow healthy food and to serve this local, healthy food to patients and employees.
