The Washington, DC Section is a proud supporter of the IFT Student Association (www.ift.org). In 2012 and 2013 the Section sponsored the IFT Student Association’s Central Atlantic Area Meeting. The Section is a current sponsor of the IFTSA/Feeding Tomorrow 5K Fun Run & Walk. Proceeds from the event are used to fund scholarships for deserving undergraduate and graduate students pursuing degrees in food science. For more information on the IFTSA/Feeding Tomorrow 5K Fun Run & Walk visit www.feedingtomorrow.org.
Section members also frequently participate in the judging of local science fairs and other K-12 activities.
Student members of IFT are encouraged to become involved in the Section. A discount meeting registration fee of $5 is offered to students for all programs.
