Campaign aims to bring a healthier menu to nation's hospitals

Washington Post, March 23, 2010

Georgetown is the first hospital in Washington, DC, to sign on to the Balanced Menus Challenge, an initiative of the advocacy group Health Care Without Harm that calls on healthcare institutions to reduce meat purchases by 20% over a 12-month period. Twenty-nine other healthcare institutions in the United States have made that commitment. The effort is part of the group's Healthy Food in Health Care campaign, in which close to 300 hospitals have agreed to incorporate sustainable foods into their menus.
