The Association of Nutrition & Foodservice Professionals (ANFP) is the national professional organization for dietary managers. The ANFP was founded in 1960. NC ANFP is a chapter of the national association and represents dietary managers at the state level. NC ANFP was organized in January 1969.
The NCANFP offers many services for student members. Each district offers regular meetings which allow students to become active in the organization. The districts provide invaluable experience in organization, planning, and information. The district meetings allow one-on-one contact with fellow students, business contacts, and current dietary managers. Generally, the district meetings provide students with field experience hours which apply to the course requirements. In addition, the NCANFP provides money for course fees and assistance with exam fees through a generous scholarship program.
