The 16th Annual 5k Fun Run & Walk is powered by volunteers of IFTSA (the student association of IFT) and Feeding Tomorrow (the foundation of IFT)

The mission of Feeding Tomorrow is to bring the best and brightest minds to the science of food and help them improve the world. One of the three priorities of the foundation is to encourage, promote, and reward excellence for students pursuing careers in the science of food. We do this by providing over 65 scholarships each year to undergraduate, graduate and PhD students at universities approved by the IFT Higher Education Review Board (HERB). Over the past 25 years, the Feeding Tomorrow scholarship program has awarded over $8.4 million dollars to IFTSA university students in order to ensure a safe, nutritious, and sustainable future food supply.
