This division includes SNEB members with broad-based educational and career experiences who work in the food sector, which encompasses subsector companies and organizations — manufacturers, food service, restaurants, trade associations, and agri-farm sector organizations. The membership of the NEFS Division reflects all that occurs in educating consumers, nutrition and health professionals and customers by these sectors. Professionals working in all aspects of the food sector share research and resources and develop projects that contribute significantly to nutrition education and consumer behavior research as well as fulfill SNEB’s goals.


The NEFS Division works to serve SNEB members by highlighting the dedicated, collaborative nutrition education efforts across the food sector to inspire and improve consumer nutrition behaviors.


The NEFS mission is to provide a focal division within SNEB to raise awareness of and promote collaboration on consumer nutrition education and behavioral research, resources and programming among SNEB members and the diverse practitioners in the food sector.
