Building a Stronger Future
Since 1985, Feeding Tomorrow has worked to ensure that the vital work of food scientists continue, and carry on to the next generation. Feeding Tomorrow has funded more than $10 million is food science programs, and distributed more than 4,000 scholarships to students pursing undergraduate and graduate food science degrees. In partnership with Discovery Education, Feeding Tomorrow provided food science resources to nearly 18,000 public high schools throughout the U.S.
Feeding Tomorrow knows that food scientists will be vital to addressing the complex issues of our food system, such as the shortage of essential resources required to feed our growing population. Therefore, we aim to introduce food science to students as young as grammar school, and encourage them to explore food science as a future career through our various programs.
