Food Forward: Creating healthy, sustainable menu options
Calling all institutions, including hospitals, to join Cultivate Michigan!
The Healthy Food in Health Care Program is part of a national campaign through Health Care Without Harm. It works to expand the network of hospitals purchasing more sustainably-produced food for their patients and staff. A primary goal is to make the critical link between how food is grown and distributed and public and environmental health.
