Support our Students

Our department strives to provide knowledge for our changing world. We undertake this work directly through teaching, research, and outreach. Gifts help prepare men and women for tomorrow's world.

The generous support of donors has helped maintain excellence in the Department of Food Science and Nutrition through funding of scholarships, fellowships, faculty chair positions, research, and much more.


The department is grateful to all those who generously contribute to the success of the department, and its students. These contributions include gifts to the department's named funds at the University of Minnesota Foundation and gifts of time and talent. Gifts to the department are accepted and administered by the University of Minnesota Foundation and are tax-deductible.
