UW Food Science Club


The Food Science Club is composed of undergraduate and graduate students interested in food science, regardless of their major. The club's primary purpose is to educate members about the food and meat industries in the Rocky Mountain region, the nation and the world. What do we do? As a club we tour food manufacturing and processing plants, we attend regional and national professional food and meat science meetings, and raise funds through community catering events. How do we benefit you as a student? As a club member, you will establish a greater base of knowledge about the food industry while networking with current and former students, as well as food industry professionals. You will also obtain a global perspective of food science and technology, and all of these will allow you to discover a career in the food or meat industry that interests you.

Upcoming club events/activities

The Food Science club meets every other Tuesday in the evenings at 6:00 in the Animal Science lobby.

The University of Wyoming Food Science Club plans to host multiple Takeout Nights throughout the spring semesters. To learn more about the club's Takeout Night, click here
