CHAPTER SPOTLIGHT: Lanier FFA Chapter, Austin, Texas

January 12, 2015

This interview first aired on the December 13, 2014 “FFA Today” show on Rural Radio SiriusXM Channel 80.
Julia Ricicar, FFA advisor at Lanier High School in Austin, Texas, talks about how her FFA chapter is using an FFA: Food For All grant to put the culture back in agriculture. Members of the Lanier FFA Chapter come from an urban setting with a wealth of diversity – students at the school represent 75 countries! FFA members learn about other cultures by helping with the school farm and community garden; by providing fresh fruit and vegetables to the school cafeteria and composting the food waste; and by participating in the school’s Breakfast in the Classroom program.
