Farm to Health Care


Hospitals, nursing homes, retirement communities and other health care facilities across New England are serving local and regionally grown food, hosting farmers markets, prescribing their patients farm-fresh food, growing on-site gardens and promoting healthy eating.

Healthy Food in Health Care

The New England Healthy Food in Health Care Program works to improve the food served in health care facilities, support our region’s farmers, and protect our environment. To learn more about how hospitals are supporting the farm to institution movement, visit the Health Care Without Harm website or the Healthy Food in Health Care webpage.
