About Us

Our History

The Washington State Food and Nutrition Council was founded in 1969 in response to the White House Conference on Food, Nutrition and Health, which brought public attention to the importance of nutrition in the life and well-being of the nation. For more than 40 years, WSFNC has been bringing together community members interested in food, nutrition, agriculture, and hunger.

Our Mission

The Washington State Food and Nutrition Council is an organization which advocates for food, agriculture, and nutrition programs, services, and education. The Council enhances its members’ ability to discern nutrition issues and related public policy issues which impact the lives of Washington state residents.

About Our Members

Our members stem from a variety of nutrition-related backgrounds, including registered dietitians, certified nutritionists, dietetic technicians, nutrition educators, food bank personnel, food service personnel, farmers, researchers and students. Members typically work or volunteer in programs that promote nutrition and nutrition education and/or support sustainable agriculture and public policy that encourages healthy eating and physical activity for all ages.

About Our Board
