Research Priorities 

The Nutrition & Foodservice Education Foundation has identified the top three research priorities, thanks to the dedicated work of the Research Roadmap Task Force.  This is NFEF's first-ever research agenda, a new document that outlines the research priorities that will shape our work as we pursue our new mission. 

 The three research priorities adopted by the NFEF are:

  • Foodservice Management Research - Includes food systems operational parameters, management activities and skills, best practices in food production and service management, and departmental financial operating parameters used by CDMs.
  • Impact of CDMs on Health Outcomes - Includes health outcomes most critical to long-term and residential care, e.g. brain function, quality of life outcomes, nutritional quality of residential care diets.
  • Resident/Client Customer Satisfaction - Includes impact of factors (e.g. types of menus and dining service on resident/client satisfaction or employment of CDMs on resident/client customer satisfaction), best practices for tools and measurement of resident/client customer satisfaction and use of data in decisions made by CDMs.

An updated version of these priorities will be available soon.
