Welcome to the Food and Nutrition Society 

RUFANS is for anyone who loves food, cooking/baking and/or nutrition. We are linked with the Food and Nutritional Sciences Department, so will be organising academic events as well as socials! The society will give you a chance to meet other like-minded foodies and have a cracking time through the socials and food-based events put on by the society throughout the year. Make sure you join us for many socials, drunken bar crawls, food trips/talks, baking/cooking competitions and much more. We're open to everyone, even if you're not on a food based course, so why not give us a try!

Here are some of the highlights of previous years:


Bake Off for Beat 2017: In 2017 RUFANS raised money for BEAT by  running a bake off  inspired event to raise awareness for eating disorder. Everyone involved had great fun, ate loads of amazing bakes goods and got to hear inspirational stories from those that have suffered from food related disorders.



Charlie Bighams Factory Tour February 2019 The first factory tour of the year! We got to taste loads of their products and rumour has it that they have built a larger factory that we may be able to have a look round! 





BBC Good Food Show November 2018 One of our legendary trips is the visit to the BBC Good Food Show, that never disappoints! There are loads of free food samples to satisfy all your food cravings. Make sure to save some cash over the term to spend on quality food and drink here! We usually go and see the Queen that is Mary Berry in the super theatre! Tickets will be on sale soon after Freshers.





Spring Formal! We all had a great time at the Be At One in Reading for our Spring formal, welcoming in the new committee and thanking the old committee for a great year. The drinks and free buffet could not be resisted and we even managed to sneak in a cheeky visit to spoons before dancing the night away.
