We Make a Difference
The Food and Beverage Association of America is dedicated to promoting and advancing friendly relations between members, encouraging continuing education, assisting in career growth, providing industry-related scholarships, and providing philanthropic support for critical social issues.
The Association is a not-for-profit professional organization composed of people from the hospitality industry to promote and encourage the adoption and application of improved standards, methods and the interchange of information in the food and beverage service industry.
The Association invests in the future of the hospitality industry via Scholarship and Awards Programs, offering financial assistance to future hospitality professionals who have demonstrated need and maintained scholastic superiority. In 1997, the Association committed a five-year pledge of $100,000 to fund a learning center in the name of the Food and Beverage Association of America at the Bobst Library of New York University. This Learning Center will serve as a research collection of information for students and faculty as it relates to our industry. The Association is pleased to be a sponsor of New York University’s Center of Hospitality and Tourism and Travel.
Additionally, over the past five years, the Association has committed student scholarship monies currently totaling $100,000 to the Hospitality Management Department at New York City College of Technology. These funds have given students the ability to complete their academic requirements toward their college degree and begin their careers …becoming outstanding professionals in our industry.
