The American Dietetic Association (ADA) House of Delegates (HOD) conducted a dialogue on October 21, 2005 to identify the role of ADA members in supporting a sustainable food supply that is healthful and safe. It was noted there was a need to increase ADA membersÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ awareness of sustainable food systems and encourage ADA members to assume leadership roles in the area of sustainable food systems. Following the dialogue, a motion was adopted on November 30, 2005 to appoint a Sustainable Food Systems Task Force. The House of DelegatesÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ dialogue on a sustainable food supply confirmed the need to define the role of ADA members as it relates to food and nutrition practice, therefore, the Task Force will Develop a Primer to increase member awareness of sustainable food systems practices and emerging roles for food and nutrition professionals in this area of practice. The Primer will utilize the applications identified by the HOD to promote, support and educate food and nutrition professionals about principles of sustainable food systems.
