Published:

To help celebrate their 50th anniversary, the American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture presented 50 educators with $50 teacher resource grants. The grants can be used 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 strives to rebuild the bonds of trust between American consumers and the people who proudly grow their food, fiber, and energy.
