Hospital Emergency Food Supply Planning Guidance and Toolkit

The toolkit was developed to provide guidance  to hospitals in planning for and documenting emergency food supplies as mandated by regulatory requirements. These resources were developed for use by hospital Food Services directors and/or hospital dietitians. Hospital Emergency planners should also review and become familiar with these documents for joint planning purposes.

Users should first print the following attachments prior to viewing the video presentation:

A round-table session providing direction on the use of the toolkit will be held at the California Dietetic Association Annual Conference on April 4, 2014 in Pomona, CA. Dietitians who attend the conference are encouraged to participate. For information about the CDA annual conference, visit
