                   IN ASSEMBLY
 
                                    February 1, 2019
                                       ___________
 
        Introduced  by  M.  of  A.  GOTTFRIED  --  read once and referred to the
          Committee on Health
 
        AN ACT to amend the public health law, in relation  to  offering  plant-
          based food options in hospitals
 
          The  People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:

     1    Section 1. The public health law is amended by adding  a  new  section
     2  2827 to read as follows:
     3    §  2827. Plant-based food options. 1. Upon request by a patient or the
     4  patient's lawful representative in a  hospital  providing  inpatient  or
     5  residential  care,  the  hospital  shall offer the patient a plant-based
     6  food option as an alternative to every meal or  snack  offered  in  food
     7  service  to  the patient. All the hospital's written material describing
     8  food offerings shall include the  availability  of  a  plant-based  food
     9  option.  The  plant-based  food option shall be offered at no additional
    10  cost to the patient beyond what would be charged for a  comparable  non-
    11  plant-based food option.
    12    2.  The  hospital shall respond in a reasonable manner and time to any
    13  request made under this section. The  request  shall  be  effective  for
    14  every hospital meal or snack in which the patient is reasonably expected
    15  to  participate.  This  section does not preclude the offering of plant-
    16  based food options to patients who have not requested it, and  does  not
    17  preclude  an individual who has requested a plant-based food option from
    18  selecting a non-plant-based food option.
    19    3. As used in this section:
    20    (a) "Plant-based food option" means a food or beverage that is free of
    21  animal products and that has nutritional value comparable  to  the  non-
    22  plant-based food option that it replaces.
    23    (b) "Animal product" means meat, poultry, seafood, dairy, eggs, honey,
    24  and any derivative thereof.
 
         EXPLANATION--Matter in italics (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                              [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                                   LBD04012-02-9

        A. 4072                             2
 
     1    §  2. This act shall take effect one year after it shall have become a
     2  law. Effective immediately, the commissioner of health  may  make  regu-
     3  lations  and  take  other actions reasonably necessary to implement this
     4  act on that date.
