Better Days Through Better Ways Applications
Kentucky FFA is pleased to announce the availability of funds, to help fight hunger, in the form of a competitive grant process for chapters. Better Days Through Better Ways grants are provided through funding from the Mulhollem Cravens Foundation, as a special project of the Kentucky FFA Foundation.
Chapters may apply for up to $1,000 to support year-long service-learning projects focused on developing and implementing sustainable hunger programs. Service-learning is a method of teaching and learning that challenges students to identify research, develop, and implement solutions to identified needs in their school or community as part of their curriculum. Project concepts include, but are not limited to:
• Developing a community garden to supplement fresh fruits and vegetables to the school or local food pantry;
• Raising broilers and/or laying hens to provide fresh meat and eggs to local families;
• Growing Tilapia and other protein sources to be donated to the community; or
• Hosting community workshops on container and backyard gardening and other sustainable food practices.
Applications are due in the Frankfort office, September 1st.
