Nutrition & Foodservice Education Foundation Seeks to Shine a Light on Emerging Trends

Dana Halvorson

The Nutrition & Foodservice Education Foundation (NFEF), philanthropic arm of the Association of Nutrition & Foodservice Professionals (ANFP), has re-launched itself, with a new mission and strategic plan that focuses on support for research, new educational programs and scholarships for students. Through its work, the new Foundation is encouraging and supporting development of innovations and best practices in nutrition and foodservice, designed to help the profession adapt to demographic changes and other societal trends.

The Foundation recently completed its first major research project since its re-launch last year, providing findings about the food and dining preferences of residents in long-term care facilities.  It has also launched a survey of Certified Dietary Managers and other nutrition and foodservice professionals to help identify key research needs and opportunities. To participate in the survey, please go here.  In January, the Foundation announced funding from its first major corporate partner, Reinhart Foodservice, L.L.C.
