OIFT Virtual Food Drive

Dear Members & Friends of Ozark Institute of Food Technologists (OIFT),

We hope everyone is staying safe this holiday season!  The COVID-19 pandemic caused the OIFT leadership team to alter the agenda for 2020 and 2021.  Since we have not had the opportunity to meet in person, we are asking the OIFT community to come together to support a Virtual Food Drive to benefit the NWA Food Bank.  With the challenges of the pandemic, our friends and neighbors need our support. The virtual aspect of the food drive will help support our community without the increased risk of an in-person event.  OIFT will be matching the first $2,000 in donations.  We encourage OIFT members to give individually, as well as seek support from their employers in this initiative.  Thank you for your contribution, and we look forward to kicking off 2021 with strong support for our community and members.

$1.00 will help provide up to 10 meals
$25 will help provide up to 250 meals
$50 will help provide up to  500 meals 
$75 will help provide  up to 750 meals
$120 will help provide up to  1,200 meals
