The article describes how the food service at Greenwich Hospital in California takes advantage of pork's health profile on patient and cafeteria menus. In 2008, the facility implemented California's workplace guidelines for nutrition and introduced a color-coded menu for its Nutmeg Grill and Garden Café. As such, pork is categorized under the green listing, considered excellent, because of their low saturated fat content. The success of their pork offering is described by Suzanne Magnotta, manager of nutrition services.
