Social Media Users Pick at Hospital Food in Hungary

Categories: Hungary, Citizen Media, Digital Activism, Health

A blog, ‘Kórházi koszt [1]‘, was launched over the summer of 2014 in Hungary, exposing the poor quality and small rations of food in Hungarian hospitals.

The blog rose from the outrage among Hungarians who stayed at hospitals and received not only small portions of food, but often cheap and “disgusting” meals. The blog's Facebook page [2] gathered almost 6000 followers within just weeks. In the meantime, Buzzfeed listed [3] pictures of 22 hospital meals served in different countries, making Hungarian netizens envious of the quality of food served there.
