The National FFA Organization awarded $330,000 in grant money for the “FFA: Food for All” program, which provided funding for service-learning projects to fight hunger.
The program focuses on developing and implementing sustainable hunger programs. Service-learning is a method of teaching and learning that challenges students to identify, research, develop and implement solutions to identified needs in their school or community as part of their curriculum.
The FFA: Food for All program provided up to $2,500 to 140 chapters in 41 states to assist local chapters with their programs. All of the projects will rely on FFA members for implementation. In addition to providing food for local residents in need, FFA members will provide helpful information regarding the care, preparation and preservation of food.
FFA: Food For All Grants are sponsored by Farmers Feeding the World and the Howard G. Buffett Foundation as a special project of the National FFA Foundation. To find a participating FFA chapter in your area, click here. www.communitywalk.com/FFA_Living2Serve.
