Review 2013 FFA: Food For All program impacts Here.
Chapters may apply for up to $2,500 to support year-long service-learning projects that address local hunger needs. Service-learning is a method of teaching and learning that challenges students to research, develop, and implement solutions to identified needs in their school or community. Project ideas include, but are not limited to:
- Developing a community garden to supplement fresh fruits and vegetables to the school or local food pantry;
- Raising broilers and/or laying hens to provide fresh meat and eggs to local families;
- Growing Tilapia and other protein sources to be donated to the community; or
- Hosting community workshops on container and backyard gardening and other sustainable food practices.
Check out what the 2013 FFA: Food For All chapters are doing to fight hunger by visiting the Community Walk Map! Updated map with 2014 grantees coming soon!
FFA: Food For All Grants are sponsored by RAM, Farmers Feeding the World, the Donaldson Foundation and Monsanto as a special project of the National FFA Foundation.
