AgScape’s Ontario-wide food and agriculture education program recently received a $45,000 investment from Libro Credit Union.
Libro’s investment will be directed over a three-year period to fund 195 agri-food lessons for more than 4,200 southwestern Ontario students.
Libro’s investment will also sup- port three AgScape interactive Career Competitions where students will have the opportunity to learn directly from experts in the agri-food community.
“The Teacher Ambassador Pro- gram and AgScapes’ education programming are critical to help close the food literacy gap and build a more resilient food system,” John Kiser, Commercial & Agricultural Relationship Manager with Libro Credit Union explains.
Local Food Accessibility is one of Libro’s key focus areas and one of the biggest challenges in the region. Libro Credit Union has deep roots in agriculture and continues to support more than 3,200 farm and agri-business owners in southwestern Ontario.
