Our Impact...

In 2023, our Foundation provided just over $988,000 in scholarships, awards, and grants to 345 recipients, which included credentialed practitioners, students, and dietetic interns. I am incredibly proud that in just one year, we provided nearly $1 million in support to empower these current and future food and nutrition practitioners.  I want to thank everyone who contributed to our Foundation last year, none of this would have been possible without your support. 

Congratulations to all of the Foundation’s 2023 scholarship, award, and grant recipients.
