ALBANY - Earlier this year, Albany FFA received a $2,500 grant to help fight hunger in Green County through the National FFA Organization's Feeding Our World - Starting at Home initiative. As part of the initiative, the FFA: Food For All program helps FFA members understand the causes and effects of hunger and encourages them to take action in their communities. Albany FFA used its grant to partner with local elementary students to construct raised garden beds for each classroom, providing them with an experiential learning process focused on hunger and agriculture.
