Food Disruptors “Food Foundations” podcast series - episodes 10,12,13,16  Food Disruptors Podcast - IFT.org

IFT Fireside Chat - International Division - Coping with COVID: Fixing Food Systems in Developing Countries - IFT.org


August 11, 2020 

This is free but requires registration.  An interview with TechnoServe and JUST Foods/Tailored Foods, who both work in developing countries.

Feeding Tomorrow’s Volunteer Globally program - IFT works with USAID's Farmer-to-Farmer program to fill volunteer assignments requiring food science background.  They are listed on IFT's career page. Currently the assignments are remote.  Volunteers must be US citizens or permanent residents; this is a USAID requirement, not IFT's.
