DFA of California is Safe Food Alliance’s mother company and was established in 1908 as a non-profit trade association. The DFA Scholarship Foundation was established in 2012, as a tax deductible 501 (C)(3) organization, to encourage educational opportunities for students pursuing a degree in food science, biology, chemistry or a science, with the ultimate goal of attracting future graduates for employment in the food industry.
Every year, DFA awards scholarships to deserving students throughout the state of California from donations made to the Live and Silent Auctions during the Safe Food California conference.
The success of this program is made possible due to the ongoing support of all of our members and industry friends who contribute so generously through their donations and their participation in the annual silent and live auctions.
The silent auction will run throughout the duration of the conference. A silent auction station will open during the Conference Kick-Off Exhibitor Reception on April 2nd and will close on Thursday, April 4th at 10:30am.
This year the live auction will be held during the Conference Kick-Off Exhibitor Reception.
All items will be available for payment pickup on the day of April 4th before the conference concludes.Donation Item Suggestions
