The Young Foodsters

History

Logo of the original “Foodsters”

The “young Foodsters” started in the early 1950’s when the food and financial industries were centered in San Francisco.  We still have some of the pioneers of the food industry in our ranks from those days.  Over the years, The Foodsters have evolved into a viable scholarship and social networking organization with a valuable tradition.  We look forward to our upcoming events; the holiday luncheon and dinner dance, Irwin’s Cioppino feed, golf tournament and speaker luncheons, to keep this tradition alive.
