The Nutrition & Foodservice Education Foundation envisions a future in which the health of the nation is improved through the advancement of innovations and best practices in food safety and foodservice management.

Change for the Future

The professional environment for nutrition and foodservice management in the United States is rapidly changing. Consumers have become more empowered and choice-driven, with higher expectations for their culinary experiences when dining in foodservice settings.

Cafeterias and foodservice centers across the country are experiencing this change, particularly in health-care settings, such as hospitals and senior care facilities. As this environment continues to change, the nutrition and foodservice profession will need to adapt.

NFEF is helping the foodservice and nutrition profession stay ahead of rapid change by fostering innovative thinking, cutting-edge research and new ideas.

Our highest priority is education for the future. We encourage and reward nutrition and foodservice leaders and organizations who are helping our profession adapt, grow and change. We share their ideas and knowledge to benefit those we serve and to ultimately achieve a healthier society.
