Community Involvement

IAIFT is a proud supporter of student education in the food sciences. We work closely with Iowa State University students and faculty to support the growth of their food science program. Students in the Food Science Clu​​​​​​​b h​​​​​​​ave the opportunity to join IAIFT as a student member. Being a student member allows them access to many of IFT’s offerings such as scholarship opportunities, college bowl competitions, volunteer positions and the opportunity to serve on the section ​​​​​​​board. ​​​​​​​For more information on Iowa State’s food science program please follow the link below:​​​​​​​
IAIFT and industry sponsors award scholarships each year to top students in the food science program. These scholarships allow students to cover tuition costs, travel for internships and job shadows and provide assistance for professional development workshops. Learn more about our scholarship program here.
Community involvement goes beyond supporting students. Each year IAIFT hosts a food and coat drive to support local food banks and community organizations.  These donations help keep Iowans warm and fed throughout the year. In addition, IAIFT support the Food Bank of Iowa with an annual contribution to ensure that all Iowans have access to food.
