AHF Empowers Its Self-Operated Members

At AHF, we believe that self-operated healthcare foodservice is stronger when it stands united.

Our 1,200-member organization brings together chefs, dietitians, and foodservice managers with industry professionals - experts in food products and equipment, educators, design and performance consultants, and media specialists - to elevate the foodservice in acute care and senior living facilities. Collectively, we develop tools and services that defend and support our self-operated members.

Our operator members are the healthcare facilities and systems that manage their own foodservice. AHF believes that patients, their families, and the community are best served by self-operated foodservice, rather than contracted operators.

AHF supports its Operator members with the following programs:

  • Robust online community and membership directory
  • Educational webinars and on-site classes
  • Annual Conference & Marketplace
  • Industry Magazine -- S.O. Connected
  • Benchmarking EXPRESS[TM] - An online tool for analyzing and improving performance

Operator Membership Types:

  • Operator Primary: The primary contact at a healthcare facility - $195
  • Operator Secondary: Each additional contact at a healthcare facility - $140
  • Corporate Operator: Discounted member type for facilities with 4+ individual members - Starts at $495 for 4 members
