Silent Auction Information

Welcome to the MNIFT 2023 Fundraising Event and Silent Auction! We are proud to announce that this year's silent auction will begin on January 25 and will culminate on February 7 at our event held at Surly Brewing Co.

The event will begin at 5:00pm and will feature trivia games, a brewery tour, buffet-style dinner, drinks, and networking! Guests will have the opportunity to snatch up unique items and gifts and get into a friendly competition with your colleagues - while supporting food science student scholarships!

With the generous support from individuals and companies such as yours, the annual MNIFT Silent auction have raised over $100,000 since its inception in 2006.

All proceeds from the silent auction will be split 50/50 between the Feeding Tomorrow Scholarship of IFT Foundation (which supports national scholarships) and our MNIFT Scholarship fund (which supports local scholarships).

We are committed to the mission of inspiring the imagination of next generation food scientists. To fulfill our commitment, we collaborate with students and educators to:

  • Raise awareness about how Food Science is vital to everyday life
  • Highlight the rewarding careers available in our industry, and
  • Encourage them to learn more about their academic opportunities in Food Science

The future of our industry depends on the next generation of food scientists and technologists.
