2018 Annual Cioppino Feed & Scholarship Luncheon

March 23, 2018 @ 11:00 am



The Food Industry Foundation Presents

The 61st Annual Cioppino Feed

& Scholarship Luncheon


In 1957, The Foodsters decided to endow a scholarship program for young people coming into our industry, and sought an appropriate venue to raise funds and promote the program.

In order to attract maximum support of this effort, Irwin Gibbs offered his services in organizing a Cioppino Feed for Foodsters and their guests, which was held at the Leopard Café in San Francisco and drew a crowd of 60.

Irwin’s “crew” at that time consisted of Tom and Dave O’Conner and Bill McCormick.

This annual event is always a “DON’T MISS” opportunity for fun, food, & festivity among the members of the Northern California food industry. MOST IMPORTANTLY, proceeds will help the future of the food industry by supporting students preparing to enter the industry upon graduation.

Since its inception, the FIF has raised over $500,000 for scholarships and developed endowments at the schools in able to support students studying food science, nutrition, food and agribusiness management and other food related courses of study.
