The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Political Action Committee (ANDPAC) is the only political action committee broadly focused on food, nutrition and health. It ranks among the top health professional political action committees in the country. 

ANDPAC is a non-partisan group that uses donations — not Academy dues — to support political candidates for federal congressional office and who are aligned the Academy's mission, vision and public policy priorities in the following impact areas: disease prevention and treatment; lifecycle nutrition; health food systems and access; quality health care; and health equity.
