Foundation Events

Feeding Tomorrow Fund events provide fulfilling opportunities for the science of food community to come together to support the vision of creating a culture of support for the world’s next generation of professionals in the science of food. This is done through a variety of events, including sharing classroom resources with educators, collectively getting fit to raise funds for student scholarships, and honoring our scholarship recipients.
