May 15, 2018 – Food Science Reimagined – Feeding the World 

Malnutrition is the leading cause of death for 1/3 of the world’s children under 5!  4 out of 5 Ghanaian children suffer from malnutrition.  In Malawi and Zambia >50% of children under 5 are stunted in both body and brain development!  Thanks to the generosity of The Hershey Company, USAID and CNFA’s Farmer-to-Farmer program these food scientists have been able to help to make a difference in these countries.  Food Science Reimagined will take you to these areas and help to increase your understanding of how innovative food science works in 3rd world countries; this is not your typical food production factory review!

Our speakers will be Judy Cooley, Global Confection Connections LLC, Mark Kline, Hershey Foods, and Karen Ocamb, Hershey Foods

The meeting will be held at Drexel University.  We will have a special meal prepared by the students.  We will also be honoring this year’s Hans Dresel Scholarship recipients.  We are inviting students from all universities to attend the meeting at no cost.

The cost of the event is $65 per person.  Students are no cost (but must still RSVP so we have an accurate count).
