Healthy and high-quality food in public hospitals and aged care facilities - audit overview and FAQs

The Victorian Government is committed to ensuring that food served in our public hospitals and public sector residential aged care services is fresh, healthy and where possible, locally sourced, supporting Victorian farmers and producers.

To achieve this, a comprehensive review of public hospital and residential aged care facility food services is underway.

The review assessed the nutritional value, quality (including taste, variety and cultural diversity) and origin of the food being served up in public hospitals and aged care services across Victoria.

After this review, all Victorian public hospitals and public aged care services will be required to follow new health and quality food standards.
