BRENTWOOD, MO - Produce for Better Health Foundation (PBH) will soon be taking to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND) Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo (FNCE). As it joins one of the world’s largest meetings of its kind—which takes place in Orlando, Florida, October 8–11—PBH will be promoting its Have A Plant® initiative to influential dietitians through multiple exclusive events.
“This group of professionals are exceptionally important as consumers continue to put health and well-being first,” stated Wendy Reinhardt Kapsak, MS, RDN, President and Chief Executive Officer of PBH. “Given last week’s White House Conference on hunger, health, and nutrition security, now, more than ever, we need to make sure that fruits and veggies stay center stage with these food and nutrition influencers. We cannot effectively advance fruit and vegetable consumption without engaging with, educating, and inspiring registered dietitians who are on the front lines promoting health, and fruits and vegetables, every single day in their professional lives.”
In addition, as noted in a press release, PBH will also co-host an event with the National Cattleman’s Beef Association (NCBA), titled “Beef. It’s What’s For Dinner,” which will promote #BetterTogether and the joy of pairing produce with beef.
PBH will also be activating “boots-on-the-ground” engagement and education with several exclusive audiences throughout the five-day event.
“We’re thrilled to be able to engage with this important group in person for the first time in three years, as we continue to advance the PBH mission as well as spread the Have A Plant Movement among one of the largest influencer groups in the country,” says Katie Calligaro, PBH Marketing and Communications Senior Director. “Rest assured we will be promoting all forms of fruits and vegetables, identifying collaboration opportunities for our produce partners, as well as scouting up-and-coming professionals who may be interested in joining PBH’s Have A Plant Influencer Network in 2023 and beyond.”
