Food Science and Food Safety Club hosts regional meeting, College Bowl

The NDSU Food Science and Food Safety Club hosted the 2021 North Central Institute of Food Technologists Student Association Area Meeting and College Bowl virtually on April 9-10. The meeting was chaired by NDSU cereal science graduate student Brandon Olson.

Food science undergraduate and graduate students from NDSU, the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Iowa State University participated in events via Zoom. The club is advised by Anuradha Vegi, assistant professor of practice in the Department of Plant Sciences.

NDSU alumna Chantal Nde, principal scientist at Frito-Lay, PepsiCo, Texas, presented “Food Safety Career Progression” during the meeting.

The Food Science College Bowl was the meeting’s key event, in which students tested their knowledge in food science and technology, the history of foods and food processing, food law and food-related trivia. NDSU students who participated in the College Bowl were Jayani Maddakandage Dona, Anna Mahoney, Claire Moffet, Abrielle Schnurr, Allison Stoner and Jacob Thomsen. After a final round that went into double overtime, NDSU took second place. The winners were students from UWM, who will represent the region at the national annual meeting to be held July 19-21.

The main goals of the NDSU Food Science and Food Safety Club are to lead undergraduate and graduate students by fostering relationships among the food industry and students and faculty; encourage leadership, promote school activities and foster interest in cereal and food sciences, food safety, and food technology professions; and community involvement.
