By on October 15, 2011

KANE COUNTY—The Kane County Farm Bureau Foundation awarded more than $1,300 in grant funds to FFA Chapters in the county to recognize the continued contributions of students from Kane County FFA Chapters from Central (Burlington), Hinckley-Big Rock and Kaneland high schools. Each qualified for between $350 to $500 in grant funds.

This is the third consecutive year that the foundation made grants available to FFA Chapters for their help at Ag Days at Mooseheart, Touch-A-Tractor and the Kane County Fair.

The foundation selected three Farm Bureau programs to help promote leadership development skills in FFA members.

The Kaneland FFA Chapter contributed to the Farm Bureau’s Harvest for all hunger relief effort for a second year. They pledged proceeds from an acre of the harvest from their corn test plot to help stock the shelves of the Between Friends Food Pantry in Sugar Grove.
