Another Reason to Love Domino's: Future Farmers of America #FFA
My family has a strong appreciation for our US farmers and home-grown produce. It makes us extra happy to see Domino's doing their part! Beginning in 2017, Domino's is supporting students interested in a future in agriculture. by donating $1 million over five years to the FFA Organization. For those of you who aren't familiar, FFA is a student organization whose mission is to promote premier leadership, personal growth and career success, while growing leaders, building communities and strengthening agriculture. You can find out a lot more about the organization here. The money will help to fund collegiate scholarships for high school graduates as well as grants for supervised agriculture experiences for students in grades 7-11, and agriculture literacy and advocacy programs. It will also be put toward FFA's Living to Serve platform that supports hunger and environmental initiatives in local communities and states. Their VP of Communication and Investor Relations, Tim McIntyre, said it well:
"There is no Domino's without the dairy, tomato, wheat and other farmers across the United States working hard every day to produce the food we serve. We want to do something other than say we support the farming community, we want to make a commitment to an organization that is making a difference. A commitment to FFA is a commitment to supporting the future of agriculture."
It always helps to know that the money we spend in businesses helps to support worthy causes. A big shout out to Domino's for their generosity in giving back to the community in a huge way! Do you have a Domino's menu favorite?
