Food Insecurity/Food Banking Supervised Practice Concentration
Twenty-three dietetic internship programs piloted tested a new Food Insecurity/Food Banking Supervised Practice Concentration, and it’s now available to all educators! The activities were developed as part of the Academy Foundation’s Future of Food initiative, with a development team of dietetic educators and RDNs from the Feeding America Network. Any of the activities can be used as stand-alone experiences, but the full concentration includes 12 activities to be completed within 120 practice hours. The activities are designed to help interns develop the knowledge and skills necessary for an entry level RDN position in a food bank, and provide the intern with experiences in nutrition education, food bank management and food systems. The concentration was made possible through an educational grant from National Dairy Council to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation- read the full study here.
