Household Food Insecurity Network


The purpose of the Household Food Insecurity Network (HFIN) is to provide support to Dietitians of Canada members who are interested or involved in household food insecurity (HFI), poverty reduction and health equity.  Whether you work in public health, clinical or food service, this network has information and activities relevant to your dietetic practice.  Joining the HFIN network will give you access to practice tools, resources, professional education and networking opportunities. Grow your toolbox for a current household food insecurity lens and create or support HFIN initiatives. 
Your membership provides:
  • Informative webinars featuring expert speakers on topics relevant to household food insecurity and dietetic practice. Webinars are recorded and available to view at your convenience.
  • Active discussion opportunities to share information and research to encourage active discussions in the Coast to Coast member forum. Members can post questions related to practice and gain valuable feedback from others.
  • Possibilities for Network Surveys and discussions throughout the year.
  • Access to blogs with focused short articles on current topics, trends and RD experiences 
  • Student scholarships to attend the DC conference.
We welcome your interest in the Household Food Insecurity Network and look forward to connecting further.
