American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture Advances Ag Literacy with Teacher Resource Grants

Newsroom / August 18, 2017

The American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture presented teacher resource grants to 50 educators to help celebrate the Foundation’s 50th anniversary. Teachers may use the $50 grants to purchase agricultural literacy materials from the Foundation’s online store for classroom use.

“Our aim in presenting these grants is to advance agricultural literacy by providing teachers with classroom materials to share with their students and fellow teachers,” said Julia Recko, director of education outreach at the Foundation. Educators employed by a school and working in grades K-12 were eligible to apply for the grants.

The American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture is working to rebuild the bonds of trust between American consumers and the people who proudly grow their food, fiber and energy. Learn more at agfoundation.org.
