Farmland Foods, the maker of bacon, sausage, ham and lunch meat, this week recognized the Iowa FFA Association and its positive impact in Iowa with a $5,000 donation. The donation is part of the 2021 Honoring the Heartland Tour, an initiative launched by Farmland in June to show appreciation for Midwest farming communities, agriculture industries, and retail establishments, and to support the next generation of farmers. The brand’s 13-week mission will honor the unsung agri-food chain heroes and highlight the fundamental role the Heartland plays by delivering lunches and providing monetary donations to support the future of farming. In addition to distributing meals, the brand will be providing donations to the National FFA Organization and state-level FFA associations throughout the tour. The $5,000 donation to the Iowa FFA Association will go toward the organization’s mission to develop its more than 16,400 students’ potential for leadership, personal growth and career success.
