For the second consecutive year, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics had the honor today of co-hosting the Washington Post’s “Future of Food” forum in Washington, D.C. We co-hosted this inspiring and important event with the National Dairy Council and I had the pleasure of making opening remarks at the conference. Discussions ranged from technological innovations to make food more affordable and nutritious, to private-public partnerships that are leading the sustainable food movement in our country.
Achieving food security is vital to improving the health of our nation. It is the position of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics that access to food is a basic and fundamental human right; the Academy and our 75,000 members in the U.S. and abroad are working diligently to help people be food-secure.
One in five children and one in 12 older adults are at risk for hunger in the U.S. That is why, every day, registered dietitian nutritionists and dietetic technicians help individuals and families to make informed choices about accessing nourishing food and develop practical strategies to feed their families adequately.
