The Food & Spirituality Committee of the Hunger & Environmental Nutrition Dietetic Practice Group of the Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics is seeking to collect stories of people working on food, nutrition, healthy eating, hunger, and sustainable agriculture projects from a faith-based and/or spirituality perspective. The Food & Spirituality Committee would like to collect and share these stories to better facilitate communication and collaboration among people who share similar missions and goals. These stories can come from individuals within (or outside of) traditional faith-based institutions, Registered Dietitian/Nutritionists, public health professionals, non-profits and community-based organizations working with faith-based groups, or even from community members not tied to a specific organization but who are using a spiritual approach to engage others on growing, cooking, or learning about food and nutrition, or advocating on behalf of efforts to support a sustainable food system. If you have a project that you feel fits this description that you would like to share with others, please complete the survey below to the fullest extent possible.
