‘Food for Thought Challenge’ FFA chapter grants deadline approaching

The opportunity for 10 Ohio FFA chapters to win $500 and one Ohio FFA chapter to win $2,000 is available until Friday, Oct. 21, 2011.

This campaign — The “Food for Thought Challenge” — is sponsored by The Ohio Small Grains Marketing Program (OSGMP), which is awarding Buckeye State FFA chapters with funds to implement healthy eating campaigns in their schools.

Can your FFA chapter get students to:

  • Eat a good breakfast?
  • Choose whole grains?
  • Eat fruits and vegetables?
  • Drink water instead of pop?
  • Change attitudes and behaviors toward healthy eating?

Winners will be selected October 28th and will showcase their campaign efforts at the Ohio State FFA Convention May 3 and 4, 2012.
