The objectives of the club shall be to foster a close relationship among the Department of
       Food Science, Nutrition and Health Promotion students and the faculty at
       Mississippi State University, to encourage leadership, to acquaint students with
       the many areas of activity in food science and technology, and to promote greater
       interest in this profession.

Membership is open to all students interested in foods and food technology, but is
     composed primarily of Food Science and Technology majors. The purpose of the
     club is to promote food science and technology, aid in the overall student
     education, and to cooperate with food science clubs from other universities to
     achieve common goals.

The club has regular meetings, and students cooperate on several club activities and
fundraisers. The money collected from these fundraisers is used to sponsor many of the
students at the IFT and other relevant meetings.

Along with hands-on experience, the club provides a useful networking tool for those
involved. Students become more acquainted with each other, the MSU faculty and staff,
and many professionals within the food industry. These relationships often prove to be
priceless as graduates enter the work force and build their careers as food scientists.
