Fight hunger at this year’s convention and expo

The National FFA Organization envisions a world in which hunger is a thing of the past. That’s why FFA members are committing to help fight hunger at home and abroad. This fall, agriculture students, teachers and supporters from across the country will travel to Indianapolis to join the fight against hunger. Held as part of the 85th National FFA Convention & Expo, the FFA Rally to Fight Hunger will engage 10,000 FFA members and volunteers in a three-day effort against hunger. The rally will be sponsored by ADM, American Family Insurance, Howard G. Buffett Foundation, Cargill, Dow Agrosciences, Elanco, Farmers Feeding the World, Land O’Lakes and Tyson as a special project of the National FFA Foundation. Those who want to participate in the rally can register through their advisors.

Through the organization’s initiative, “Feeding the World--Starting at Home,” students are learning about the issues and effects of hunger and taking action to support the right to safe, affordable and nutritious food. For more information on this initiative, visit, www.FFA.org/Hunger.
