St. Charles, IL – The Association of Nutrition & Foodservice Professionals (ANFP) will celebrate its 30th annual “Pride in Foodservice Week” February 1-5, 2021. 

Originally established by ANFP in 1991, Pride in Foodservice Week celebrates nutrition and foodservice professionals working in dietary departments. Facilities are encouraged to plan special events to honor these individuals’ hard work and dedication to client care. 

ANFP members celebrate Pride in Foodservice Week in their facilities across the country in a variety of innovative ways, such as spotlighting employees on bulletin boards, developing special menus, hosting staff dinners, or organizing food drives. 

Participants are invited to share their celebrations with ANFP throughout the week on social media. This week proudly salutes the vital work foodservice departments perform on a daily basis. 

This Pride in Foodservice Week is an important opportunity to recognize the work of foodservice professionals. The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way facilities operate and has redefined the importance of the work that non-commercial foodservice professionals perform daily.
