Support the Future of Nutrition Education

SNEB Foundation Mission: To support the next generation of nutrition educators.

The Society for Nutrition Education and Behavior Foundation invites organizations and individuals to support the nutrition education profession through our many initiatives. Opportunities to make contributions are outlined below.

As a non-profit organization, the Foundation seeks philanthropic support and partners who understand the importance of reaching people at every stage in life to positively impact their overall nutrition and health. The SNEB Foundation is a 501(c)3 charitable organization.

The work of each SNEB member extends far beyond that of the individual professional that belongs to the Society. Our members touch the lives of hundreds, thousands, even tens of thousands, of individuals each year. This audience is invaluable to any organization trying to reach the nutrition education community.
