Become an Annual Sponsor

The healthcare foodservice industry is estimated to spend $12 billion annually on food and beverage products alone. When you add equipment, technology,  and service spends into the mix the number grows exponentially. Not only is the healthcare foodservice market growing, but the portion of that market belonging to self-operated facilities is also growing. In fact, estimates note that approximately 70% of the healthcare and LTC foodservice industry are self-operated. 

Who is AHF?

AHF is an organization built to support and further self-operated facilities. Our members are directors, managers, chefs, administrators, educators, and other industry leaders and their facilities. AHF institutional members include single to multi-site facilities with locations all across the country. AHF has both acute care and long-term care as members including hospitals and senior living facilities. Facility sizes range from smaller (0-50) bed locations to larger (451+) bed locations.

Who Should Sponsor? Business partners in the foodservice, distribution, technology, software, equipment, and consulting services fields are encouraged to join AHF.
