Glades Central FFA receives Living to Serve Grant from National FFA Organization

Posted

INDIANAPOLIS — The Glades Central FFA chapter in Belle Glade, has been awarded a Spring Semester-Long Living to Serve Grant in the amount of $1,200. The nationwide program provides grant money to local FFA chapters to support semester-long service-learning projects that address needs related to community safety; environmental responsibility; hunger, health and nutrition; and community engagement during the fall semester.

Glades Central FFA is combating food insecurities by opening a student-led market, The Muck Market, to support students and families in need. Community partners for the project include the Palm Beach County Food Bank, Florida Crystals, and other local farmers. Our FFA Chapter will host educational outreach events to teach the community about food insecurity and provide resources and solutions. The goals of the project are creating a school garden, developing healthy recipes for students to prepare at home, and distributing over 500 pounds of food between March and June.

The program provided over $77,000 to FFA chapters in 30 states. The 2021 Spring Semester-Long Living to Serve Grants are sponsored by CoBank, Tractor Supply Company and Cargill. For more information and a complete listing of sponsors, visit FFA.org/livingtoserve.

The National FFA Organization is a school-based national youth leadership development organization of more than 760,000 student members as part of 8,700 local FFA chapters in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
