Federal Nutrition Advisory Coalition

About the Coalition


The Federal Nutrition Advisory Coalition (FNAC) is an ad hoc alliance of more than 100 clinical organizations, advocacy groups, public health nonprofits, academic institutions, and private sector companies dedicated to building national momentum and support for effective policies to advance our three key policy area priorities: food is medicine, nutrition security, and nutrition research. The group convenes regularly for discussions and to publish commentary on issues relevant to such an effort, bringing evidence, objectivity, and actionable policy recommendations.
