Companies partner with National FFA for educational opportunities
PepsiCo, General Mills and Bob Evans Restaurants have partnered with National FFA to create more educational opportunities for agriculture students.
Together, the corporate partners want to ensure the ag value chain remains strong and continues to thrive by providing the next generation of ag leaders with the tools they need.
PepsiCo is working with recent FFA state officers and alumni to further develop their leadership skills and introduce them to PepsiCo’s network of ag experts. Through targeted recruiting, they will help create a path to internships and career options.
General Mills is providing hands-on experience by connecting FFA members with regenerative ag producers so FFA members can learn more about regenerative farming practices and use those in Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) and Agriscience Fair projects.
Bob Evans is funding grants for SAE projects that allow high school students to further explore ag careers through innovative learning projects.
