How often do you sit down to eat with friends and colleagues? Probably not often enough! Sharing a meal goes beyond what’s on the plate – it’s where you are, who you’re with, what you discuss and the memories you create.

Food & Nutrition hosted a monthly virtual dinner party on the fourth Thursday of each month from January 2018 through May 2018. But then something cool happened: We heard your feedback about wanting to do more #FNdinnerparty events on other dates! So, we’re switching it up! Any time you want to host a gathering with friends, family or fellow RDNs, NDTRs or students, share group photos and videos on social media using the hashtag #FNdinnerparty to connect with us and others near and far.
