Farmland is partnering with the National FFA Organization to support the future of agriculture. With every Farmland item purchased now through Sept. 30, Farmland will donate $0.10 to FFA, up to $75,000. These donations will help FFA continue to further its mission of making a positive difference in the lives of students and shine a light on the agricultural industry.
"We are honored to partner with FFA to continue inspiring America's future farmers to produce quality foods and raise awareness of the importance of agricultural education," said Megan Thomas, senior brand manager for the Farmland brand at Smithfield Foods.
In addition to the donation, Farmland will provide grants to four Midwestern FFA chapters later this year, providing financial support to high school students working on animal care projects. On Oct. 25- 28, Farmland will be a sponsor of the 90th National FFA Convention & Expo in Indianapolis. The convention, which is one of the largest annual student conventions in the world, will host nearly 64,000 FFA members, vendors and guests from across the country.
"We're thrilled to work with brands like Farmland that share our dedication and passion for the farming community. Our goal is to develop students' potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education, and we couldn't do this without the support of our partners," said Molly Ball, president of the National FFA Foundation.
Participating Farmland products include everything from Farmland bacon and breakfast sausage to boneless ham and lunch meats. For more information on Farmland, and how to donate, please visit FarmlandFoods.com, Facebook.com/FarmlandFoods or @FarmlandFoods. Farmland is a brand of Smithfield Foods.
