ANFP to Celebrate 26th Annual Pride in Foodservice Week

Published on Feb 22, 2017

February 6-10 is designated "Pride in Foodservice Week" by the Association of Nutrition & Foodservice Professionals (ANFP).

Now in its 26th year, this week celebrates nutrition and foodservice professionals and other members of the nutrition service team for their hard work and dedication to client care. 

ANFP is a national not-for-profit association established in 1960 that represents more than 14,000 professional members dedicated to the mission of providing optimum nutritional care through nutrition and foodservice management. ANFP members work in hospitals, long-term care facilities, correctional facilities, and other non-commercial foodservice settings.

Nutrition and foodservice professionals are trained in understanding the basic nutritional needs of their clientele, and are responsible for purchasing, storing, preparing and delivering balanced meals, three times a day, 365 days a year.

ANFP members celebrate Pride in Foodservice Week in their facilities across the country in a variety of innovative and creative ways such as developing special menus, spotlighting foodservice employees on bulletin boards, treating foodservice staff to dinner, or collecting food for the needy. This week proudly salutes foodservice departments in community facilities for their professional efforts and vital services given throughout the year.
