Welcome to the Religious Member Interest Group. RMIG was established in 2017 to provide a resource and forum for religious diet education and community sharing. The world’s primary religions fall into two categories: Abrahamic religions, such as Christianity, Judaism, and Islam; and Indian religions, which include Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, and others. Billions of people follow the tenets of a religion and dietary practices.
RMIG’s Mission is to bring together nutrition professionals of diverse faiths to lead efforts for optimizing health and well-being through food and nutrition and accelerate improvements in global health and well-being through food, nutrition, and religion.
Our Newsletter is Food & Faith Conversations and has wonderful articles and recipes. Past issues are available in the Member section. The Pregnancy Nutrition Resource is available in the Christian Resources Section and the Ramadan Toolkit is available in the Muslim Resources Section. RMIG is also partnering with Health Ministries Association, another professional organization to engage, educate and empower people of faith to be passionate and effective leaders for creating healthier communities.
We are looking for new members and students to join and add insight to their faith and dietary practices. If you have questions or would like to see a specific religion highlighted please contact us at RMIG@eatright.org
