Food & Culinary Professionals


There is a recent instagram post that states “An apron is just a cape on backwards.” This brought tears to my eyes and joy to my heart. Whether you are in clinical, food service, community, academics, communications, culinary, food production or food safety, life has been different these past few months and your work is essential. We can all wear our aprons (or lab coats) proudly!

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.
