Seneca Foods Foundation

Seneca Foods Foundation

FFASince 1988 the Seneca Foods Foundation has been committed to philanthropic initiatives in our communities. This is a private, not-for-profit corporation that focuses on helping to prepare and empower our young people by giving them the tools they need to become independent and contributing members of their communities. We sponsor community assistance programs with specific focus on higher education, supporting our troops, and providing internships.

We are proud to sponsor 11 scholarships annually through the National Future Farmers of America Foundation. In addition, we participate in annual livestock sales at local fairs to promote the well being of the FFA program.
