“Covid-19 and the Food Supply”

On July 13, 2020, the Rutgers Food Science department and alumni committee held a virtual event, in conjunction with the IFT Annual Meeting and Food Expo. Keynote speaker, Dr. Don Schaffner, distinguished professor in the Food Science department and extension specialist, discussed how COVID-19 is spread. His presentation, “Covid-19 and the Food Supply,” focused on how the disease is transmitted and how it is affecting the supply chain. Additionally, the presentation included updates from the department chair, two current students, and the alumni and student awards presentations. Watch the video.


Department of Food Science alumni advance the legacy of a Rutgers education through their occupations, their service to their communities, their loyalty to their families and others, and their enjoyment of life.
