National FFA Organization — The Isabella High School FFA chapter in Maplesville, Alabama has been awarded a Fall 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.
Isabella FFA plans to help address hunger by raising chickens for the production of eggs to give to the community. By doing this we will assist with food insecurity in our community. We will also be teaching the students in our AG classes about the poultry industry and all the work that goes into raising chickens. We will be giving our students first hand experiences in the poultry industry.
The program provided over $75,000 to FFA chapters in 28 states. The 2023 Fall Semester-Long Living to Serve Grants are sponsored by 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 850,000 student members as part of 8,995 local FFA chapters in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
