Foundation Initiatives

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation is the only charitable organization devoted exclusively to nutrition and dietetics. Our vision: We All Eat Right. Focusing on four key initiatives — scholarships, awards, food and nutrition research, and public education related to Kids Eat Right and the Future of Food — the Foundation is dedicated to advancing public health and nutrition utilizing the expertise of registered dietitian nutritionists.

  • Future of Food

    The initial work of the Future of Food initiative engaged nutrition and hunger relief professionals to increase awareness about food insecurity while promoting access to healthy food and quality nutrition education in food banks.

  • Kids Eat Right

    The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation launched their first joint initiative, Kids Eat Right, in November 2010. This member-driven campaign is dedicated to supporting the efforts of the White House to end the childhood obesity epidemic within a generation.
