FNCE Recap 2019

Where can you go to hear the latest in nutrition research, sample the newest food products on the market, and even meet Bob of Bob’s Red Mill? The Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo (FNCE)! Sponsored by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, FNCE is the world’s largest meeting of food and nutrition experts. This past October, thousands of Registered Dietitians, nutrition science researchers, policy makers, and industry leaders descended upon the convention center in Philadelphia, PA and CulinArt’s team of Registered Dietitians were right in the middle of it all! After three days of compelling lectures, tasty samples, and informative poster sessions, they are now filled with the latest in food trends, nutrition and sustainability research, and a larger network of nutrition and culinary professionals from which to draw inspiration and ideas.

Kaitlyn McGill, our NJ based RD, cites an “informing and inspiring seminar on Intuitive Eating” as a highlight of the Conference while Laura Martorano, MS, RD, CDN, RD at Stony Brook University, states “attending the seminars was the highlight of the trip.” Laura was able to expand her knowledge by attending seminars covering various topics that were useful to her role at Stony Brook University. Melissa Talley, RD at the George School in PA found several great snack options to recommend to the students including Chickpea Puffs, a healthier alternative to traditional cheese puffs. Many of the products featured had allergens and intolerances in mind; various snacks and bars were free from of the top 8 major food allergens and a variety of grain-free breads, muffins, and other baked goods dominated the expo floor. Minimalism was key as several one-ingredient products took center stage including lentil pasta and banana chips. Bob’s Red Mill, a company committed to offering pure, whole grain flours, baking mixes, and granolas displayed their large line of offerings; Bob himself was there to introduce new products and talk about the mission and beliefs of his company.

The Compass Group community had a strong presence at FNCE. It was wonderful to have our CulinArt RD team unite in person, rather than virtually. We spent time growing as a team and connecting on daily challenges and solutions from our own experiences. The CulinArt team was also able to meet many of our Envision Group and Compass RD colleagues. It was nice to be able to network and learn from other Compass RD’s experiences in the field.

“I wanted to take this moment to thank you and your staff for making the Athletic Celebration absolutely wonderful. I cannot say enough great things about the event. The food was outstanding and the service was fantastic. Thank you for your help from start to finish.”

“Thank you and your staff for all the care and thought you give CSW adults and students. You approach events with such care and elegance- I don’t know how you do it! Especially day after day. Please thank all your staff for their wonderful work and kind manner with all of us. Here is to a great year!”

“We are so thankful and so impressed by your immediate attention to our power outage. It was such a relief to see all the equipment and workers coming in within a few hours of the outage. Thank you for serving dinner to all [the] students in a very difficult circumstance. Please extend our thanks to your workers who braved cold weather to grill hamburgers and hotdogs.”

“Just a note to let you know that you ROCK! You always pour yourself into [The] Webb [Schools] to make the dining experience the very best it can be. I’ve been hearing such positive things about the food quality this year – something I hope you feel really good about. And it is times like this with the Coronavirus that leaders truly emerge. You have been unbelievably accommodating in making last minute changes to how we serve, etc. and all else we do in the dining hall and I just want you to know how much I deeply appreciate your devotion to this special community. You are a key part of it – you model beautifully the very best of Webb. So thank you!!”

“I just wanted to give a huge compliment to the cook at Main Street. Today I had the Salmon Super Bowl and it was amazing!!!! Every day I go in there she always has something that looks too wonderful to pass up! Thank you for always having such a variety of food!”

“The dinner I had tonight at Forman was not only the best meal I have had at Forman in the entire time I have been here, it was the best meal I can remember having anywhere in a long time. [It] was a restaurant quality meal, and it added to the enjoyment that the two young ladies serving me could not have been more charming. What an energizing way to finish a weekend eating a dinner like that.”

“Yesterday I ordered the special (Bloody Mary Burger) which was one of the best burgers I’ve ever tasted, [but] this e-mail is not to praise the burger.  Eating the burger reminded me of the great service, professionalism, the smiles, the knowledge and the great food that I have come to love each and every day.  Your team, who really work as a team, take their time to explain nutrition and meal ideas, and encourage healthy eating.  I wouldn’t change one thing about this crew. I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude for their hard work each and every day.”

“What a wonderful dinner we had tonight for our international families. The food was delicious and well presented as well.”

“I hope you do the food service in heaven.”

“What a night! You and your team rocked it and made us look like stars. Great working with you and know we will have more chances to work together on future events.”
