Meet the 116th Congress

NAFEM regularly shares the website where members can locate contact details for federally elected officials. Thanks to a recently completed profile of the 116th congress by the Congressional Research Service, members can now learn more about the U.S. senators and representatives who make decisions that impact the commercial foodservice equipment industry. Information includes party affiliation, average age, occupation, education, gender, military service and other details. For example:

  • Almost all, 96 percent, members have a college education;
  • Roman Catholics account for the largest single religious denomination; and,
  • A record 131 women and 50 Hispanic/Latino members serve in the 116th
