“Invest 2 Fight Hunger Pilot Program”

INDIANAPOLIS – The National FFA Organization has selected the Blue Springs and Blue Springs South FFA chapters to participate in the Invest 2 Fight Hunger (I2FH) Pilot Program. Only 30 chapters were extended this opportunity across the nation. Blue Springs and Blue Springs South FFA will be hosting at least four educational workshops regarding hunger and its related issues.

The National FFA Organization is committed to helping combat hunger by providing its chapters and members with resources and opportunities to engage in this important cause. The Invest 2 Fight Hunger (I2FH) Pilot Program will provide opportunities for students to put their FFA leadership skills into action by educating their community. In addition, the chapter will partner with its local ADM grain elevator and Feeding America Food Bank to help provide relief for needy area citizens.

The Invest 2 Fight Hunger Pilot Program is sponsored by the Howard G. Buffett Foundation as a special project of the National FFA Foundation.
