Food & Culinary Professionals


What a year for food and for RDNs! While it is a year that likely none of us wish to go through again, the emphasis on food and health has been unprecedented. FCP members have risen to the challenge by influencing food production, helping alleviate food insecurity, teaching people how to shop, cook and do the basic tasks needed to feed their families, provide countless ideas for shopping lists, meals and new ways to cook meals in addition to providing valuable information on healthy diets and maintaining the safety of food. Dietitians touch every point in the food system. Thank you for all you have done for your patients, clients and communities during this challenging year and for helping people maintain healthier lives.

FCP is a diverse group of professionals but we join around certain themes. We remain science based in everything we do, we embrace the entire food production system from farms to the home kitchen or restaurant, we love to learn and we are compassionate. If you love food, we hope you have joined us!  

Stay connected with FCP DPG on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram - we'll be in touch.
