Longhorn IFT COVID Information

COVID-19 Update:
Given the current global environment the LIFT Board of Directors has decided to cancel all monthly meetings until we receive guidance from area and national leaders to resume normal business practices. Additionally, the National IFT’s Board of Directors made the difficult decision to transition the onsite annual meeting and food expo into a virtual experience. This was felt to be the best and safest course of action.
IFT Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates
As a non-profit dedicated to bringing together the global food community, the safety and security of our community is of utmost importance to IFT and something we take very seriously. We would like to extend our sincere concern and support to our members, friends, colleagues, partners, exhibitors, and peer organizations who have been impacted by the current 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) health emergency.
This is a complicated and evolving situation that IFT continues to monitor closely through several resources including local, national, and international public health department and agency sources. We will use the most up-to-date information gathered to inform any decisions related to upcoming short courses, meetings, and planning for IFT20. As always, the health, safety, and best interest of our community remains top of mind.
Please use the www.ift.org to find the latest COVID-19 updates related to upcoming IFT programs and events. That page will be continually updated as new information becomes available.
Sincerely, LIFT Board of Directors
