Feed the World Alumni

FTW Alumni educators are an enthusiastic group of teachers who have previously attended at least one FTW workshop, maybe more! As alumni educators, they help Feed the World by leading outreach events, piloting curriculum, connecting with the agricultural industry, and bringing career awareness to their students. Take a look at some of the things they’re doing.
