The hospital food service industry has been negatively impacted by the pandemic. A reduction in the number of hospitalizations (due to the postponement of elective surgeries in the first 2 quarters of 2020) reduced the overall patient pool, including outpatient visits for consultations. Also, with the increasing requirement of cleanliness and disinfection to reduce the spread of the virus, operational costs increased for hospitals. In this scenario, hospitals adopted creative solutions to address the restrictions and limitations. For instance, hospitals turned to pre-packaged, grab-and-go options throughout the pandemic to sustain their ability to serve customers while decreasing contact. Some facilities began taking advanced to-go orders for team members, patients, and customers to reduce long lines and bottlenecks during peak rush times. Many hospitals have also transformed their self-serve stations into an assembly-line format. Team members handle each step in the process to help consumers customize their meals while minimizing the risk for cross-contamination. Due to the disruptions in the supply chain, many hospitals narrowed their food options and undertook a more need-based approach. This strategy helped hospital foodservice operations sustain retail sales while becoming more efficient in purchasing and inventory.

Food distribution and meal ordering were the two aspects most impacted by COVID-19. Foodservice staff was not allowed into wards with COVID-19 patients to hand out meals. As a result, nursing staff working in these wards were required to perform this task. Hospitals that had been using tablets to take meal orders from patients were forced to change to paper menus that could be discarded after use to minimize the risk of spreading the virus. Some hospitals also created meal-ordering applications for mobile devices, or they would call patients on phones to take their meal orders without any face-to-face interactions. All COVID-19 hospitals were concerned about the safety of kitchen staff during the dishwashing process. To overcome this, some hospitals replaced reusable crockery and cutlery with disposable cutlery and crockery. However, it resulted in increased plastic waste.
