Manitoba Egg Farmers commit multi-year funding to Ag in the Classroom-M

by

Egg Farmers of Manitoba has pledged $75,000 over three years to support Agriculture in the Classroom-Manitoba and its mission of agriculture education.

The multi-year funding will go toward expanding ag education programs in Manitoba and sending more learning resources to educators so K-12 students can understand where their food comes from and who produces it.

“Our long-term vision is one where Manitoba students have the tools they need to know agriculture, think critically about agriculture, and feel connected to this important way of life for so many in our province,” says Katharine Cherewyk, executive director of AITC-M. “With the security of multi-year funding from partners like Manitoba Egg Farmers, we can spend more time building capacity, reducing educator waitlists, and ensuring more students will have the opportunity to learn about agriculture in the years ahead.”

The multi-year commitment will start during the 2023/24 financial year and extend until 2025/26, ensuring sustained support for AITC-M’s mission.
