Food & Culinary Professionals


Hi and welcome to the FCP website,

This is our ‘what’s happening’ hub.  From webinars (both new and archived, under Education tab) to tools and resources (under Marketplace, Subgroups, and Education tabs) and member contact information (under Member Benefits tab), you’ll find it all on our website.

Based on member feedback, we know you love to learn and taste when you travel. FCP is headed to Charleston, May 8-10. We have chosen the “#1 City to Travel to visit in the United States” according to Conde Nast Traveler Magazine, Charleston, South Carolina as our culinary destination. We’ve created a fun-filled itinerary that includes a tea plantation tour plus visits to restaurants and behind-the-scene chats with chefs to learn about the backbone of ‘low country’ cuisine. Link to all the details.  But don’t wait too long, reservations are filling and I don’t want you to miss out.

Speaking of travel, when you attend professional conferences or head out for business, consider getting together with other FCP members with a FCP Connects. FCP Connects provides the tools to set up casual networking opportunities where FCP members get together over coffee, a quick lunch, happy hour or dinner. The how-to’s are under Member Benefits.

And remember that between February 1 and 22, please vote in the Academy and FCP elections.  This is the perfect opportunity for you to have a voice.  You'll find information on FCP members who are on the national ballot here, as well as the FCP slate.

As Chair, my number one goal is that FCP be relevant to you by making your work or your life easier with resources and programs. Let me know what’s working and what could be tweaked so we can make FCP better than ever. In the meantime, share the deliciousness of what you’re cooking on our Facebook page at Food & Culinary Professionals Dietetic Practice Group.  
Last month I wished you a best-ever-more-than-you-can-image 2016. How is it going?  With all the member benefits FCP offers, it’s likely we have something to help you reach best ever!

Warm regards,  

Judy Barbe, MS, RDN
2015-2016 FCP Chair
