The Walmart Foundation announced Monday a $750,000 grant to the National FFA Foundation to incorporate sustainability principles in school education.  The National FFA Foundation will leverage its expertise to develop these educational resources.  The National FFA Organization is working to ensure they meet the demand by educating the next generation of leaders.


This generation will lead by example, act responsibly and create solutions to feed, clothe and fuel the world. National FFA Organization Chief Program Officer Christine White says, “The funding made available allows us to create new sustainability-focused education resources and programming that integrates current sustainable practices across multiple disciplines.”


The focus of these resources will be to leverage the social influences of students by creating an inclusive program so all students enrolled in agricultural education can see how sustainability is meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet theirs.
