Grant awarded from ‘Sheridan County Youth & Education Fund’

The Sheridan County Community Foundation awarded a $350.00 grant during its March funding cycle to the K-State Research and Extension Twin Creeks District in support of their Farm-2-Table Series after-school educational program.


The weekly after-school program, which has been underway with Hoxie Elementary School students in the 4th and 5th grades, is focused on educating students about the importance of agriculture. Topics have included “Agriculture All Around You, Soil & Its Importance, Livestock Production, Poultry Production, Dairy Production, Vegetable & Fruit Production, Crop Production, and The Food On Your Table.”


Participants enjoy a variety of hands-on learning activities as they explore the deeper meanings of agriculture and production practices during this 8-week program.


The Sheridan County Youth & Education Fund is an endowed fund that was established in 2022 to financially assist organizations and/or projects focused on youth and educational-related initiatives within Sheridan County, Kansas. Monies saved from past Give & Grow Sheridan County Match Day campaigns helped establish this fund as well as four additional Field of Interest Funds back in 2022.
