Volunteer with IFT’s Feeding Tomorrow Fund

Discover how you can help support our mission and contribute your time and knowledge toward food and nutrition solutions, in particular for those at the bottom of the economic pyramid.

“Participating in a Volunteer Globally opportunity, like the one I did in the country of Georgia, is an excellent way to broaden your perspective, see the world through a different lens, learn to appreciate what you have, experience tolerance, and grow as an individual.”

“Truly, that’s where my heart is: working with the teachers. When you work with a teacher, the things they learn become part of their curriculum. It takes on a new life for years.”

“The highlight of volunteering was getting to share the knowledge I acquired over the course of my career with people who could use it to build their food safety programs. There are altruistic reasons for volunteering, but there are also things you can gain from it: insights, knowledge about other cultures, and a nice ego boost.”

Volunteer Globally

As a member of the science of food community, you have unique talents and skills that can benefit the global food system—and IFT's Feeding Tomorrow Fund wants to help you leverage them for good.

Through our partnership with Partners in Food Solutions, we're bringing together the collective knowledge of our community to pursue food and nutrition solutions for communities in need.

Partners in Food Solutions, an independent nonprofit organization, is working to strengthen food security, improve nutrition and increase economic development across Africa by expanding and increasing the competitiveness of the food processing sector. They link corporate volunteers from their consortium of world-class food companies with promising entrepreneurs in twelve African countries.

Volunteering is simple and typically requires about an hour per week on the phone or online with entrepreneurs and managing directors of small food companies in Africa. Visit Partners in Food Solution's website to learn more.

Note: When applying, select "Not affiliated with one of the above" for PFS Partner Affiliation and "IFT" for Referral Source.
