Food & Culinary Professionals


It’s been a challenging year for all RDNs and NDTRs – almost a year and a half! We all miss our collegial connections with each other and to food and culinary pursuits from farm to table. Who knew we would all become so adept at video teleconferencing?

While I don’t know all your success stories during the COVID-19 pandemic, what I have learned over the past year (plus!) shows that our membership approaches culinary, food, nutrition, and dietetic issues from the strongest of evidence-based science; is creative beyond belief; resilient in our varied practice settings; and empathetic and extremely generous with the communities and clients we serve.

This year we will continue to deliver a wide-variety of member benefits – news and updates via social media; subgroups that cover the food system from agriculture to supermarkets and restaurants; webinars throughout the year; virtual workshop (2022); recipe contests; international culinary experience; and more! Did you know that FCP membership provides access to over 25 CPEUs? If you love food, check out our offerings and consider joining FCP if you aren’t already a member.

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

It’s that time! For those that missed the announcement in our April On The Menu, we’re excited to our launch our brand new FCP website soon!

As a part of the website platform migration, you need to manually download and save any completed self-study CPEU certificates now as they will not be accessible on the new platform. You can access CPEU certificates for any completed “live” webinars on the Education section of the FCP website here, and for self-study CPEU certificates, make sure you’re logged in on the FCP site, then click on your member profile on the right and scroll to the “certificates” section. 

View this brief video here on this process. Download and save your documentation by July 25th.
