The way our food is produced, processed, transported, made available for consumption, and consumed has profound impacts on environmental, public, and individual health. At each point in the food system, there are opportunities to support the health of workers, eaters, and the biological systems on which health depends. As large, mission-driven institutions, hospitals are uniquely poised to assert purchasing standards that support local and sustainable food systems for a greater cumulative impact on human and public health.
