Farm Journal Foundation's Farmer Ambassadors are a national network of farmers and producers passionate about the role of agriculture in addressing hunger around the world. Members seek to engage with policy makers, promoting a national vision and commitment to international agricultural development in U.S. foreign policy. Since the launch of the program less than 3 years ago, these leaders have conducted more than 300 meetings on Capitol Hill with policymakers.
Farmers and producers work in partnership with Farm Journal Foundation at the global level and in their home state communities to communicate with and educate diverse stakeholders about the role of modern agriculture in feeding the world. Typical engagements include: speaking opportunities, guest lecturing on University campuses, hosting community events and supporting mission-aligned organizations including community gardens, food banks and local schools.
