Problem
Most of us think of our hospitals (public and private) as places of healing and nurture.
We should therefore logically conclude that the food served should contribute to this healing and nurturing environment.

Unfortunately, the reality is not quite so logical. Most hospitals (and in-house cafes) are still serving processed meats to their patients, staff and visitors.

The World Health Organisation classified red and processed meat a Type 1 carcinogen in October 2015 (see the link below for more information).

Why do hospitals still serve up this stuff when science has told us that it causes cancer?


Solution
Let’s make our hospital menus healthier by replacing processed meats with healthier plant-based options!

Please support my petition to help kick-start this change.
You may also like to directly contact your local hospital, the Victorian Minister for Health (The Hon Jenny Mikakos MLC), your local Member of Parliament (state and federal) and local councillor (include a link to this petition in your correspondence).
