Food@Haas Club Overview

  • Operating as both a club for those interested in careers in the food industry as well as those who just love food, Food@Haas is one of the largest, most encompassing clubs on campus.  As a part of the overall Berkeley Food ecosystem, we partner with organizations across Berkeley to tackle food challenges and collaborate with other programs on campus.   

Key Activities

Food@Haas supports your career interests through the following activities:

  • Career Treks: Treks to a broad array of food-related companies, including Retail/CPG, tech and startups, food service and restaurant operations and consulting.
  • Dinners & Cooking: Because we love to eat, and we love to cook.  Dinners out around the Bay Area, intimate cooking sessions at your classmates’ homes, and everything in between.
  • Visits, Tours & Crawls: Travel to different food-meccas!  Tour specialty food production facilities!  Feast on dim sum and fried chicken!
