Food & Nutrition Receives Coveted Social Responsibility Award for Civility Pledge

Food & Nutrition Magazine® has been named a Communitas Award recipient for its Pledge of Professional Civility, an initiative designed help foster camaraderie among the nutrition and dietetics community and encourage constructive engagement among peers.

Throughout history, a defining human attribute has been a sense of communitas — people helping people for the benefit of their community. The need for communitas has never been more important, and benevolent companies, their employees, community organizations and individuals are contributing skills and resources to take on these challenges, as well as placing additional emphasis on ethics.

The Communitas Awards is an international effort to recognize exceptional businesses, organizations and individuals that are unselfishly giving of themselves and their resources, and those that are changing how they do business to benefit their communities. Communitas Awards honor companies, organizations and individuals that go beyond rhetoric and whose commitment to community and social responsibility sets them apart.

Food & Nutrition Magazine® is published by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, the world’s largest organization of food and nutrition professionals. Learn more about its Pledge of Professional Civility.
