AHF Board of Directors

AHF’s leadership draws from the expertise and industry experience of our most valuable resource – our member base. Comprised of healthcare foodservice professionals, from facilities large and small, from acute care and senior living, AHF’s leadership believes healthcare is best served by the self-operated foodservice model. Board members serve for a typical 2 or 3-year term with annual terms running from January-December.
