Ending Hunger

Second Harvest Foodbank
In 2013, ALCIVIA began our relationship with Second Harvest Foodbank. Through community partnerships, Second Harvest Foodbank’s mission is to end hunger in the communities they serve. ALCIVIA is proud to be a diamond sponsor, and our team and members have helped provide over 322,000 meals to families in need.

The Drive to Feed Kids Initiative
As an agricultural cooperative, finding a way to feed children in our local communities is a natural fit. The Drive to Feed Kids is a collaboration between Nutra Blend and their animal nutrition and feed partners to increase awareness about child hunger and raise money to feed children in the US. We’re proud to partner with The Drive to Feed Kids initiative to help feed hungry children in our service territory.

Scholarship Program

To encourage academic, professional, and leadership development among post-secondary students, ALCIVIA awards a minimum of 15 scholarships annually, of $1,000 each, to students pursuing a two- or four-year degree, agriculture short course students, and/or high school seniors. All active ALCIVIA members, employees, and their children are eligible to apply.

We have awarded almost 900 scholarships totaling more than $440,850 to students since 1989. Building a strong future for agriculture helps ensure a strong future for our members, our communities, and the world.

Check this page later this summer for more details on the scholarship program and application deadline.
