Avian Science Club wins $7,500 grant
The MSU Avian Science Club won a $7,500 grant through the Reach Teach Learn contest – an initiative focused on encouraging positive conversations between the poultry industry and the general public about what it takes to safely produce today’s abundant food supply.
Serving about 35,000 meals a day – incorporating a wide variety of poultry items including rotisserie chicken, chicken sandwiches, made-to-order eggs and omelets – Culinary Services supported the Avian Science Club in their initiatives to educate MSU students and guests about the poultry and eggs served in MSU dining halls and other on-campus dining locations.
For the contest, university poultry science clubs were encouraged to submit proposals outlining how $7,500 in grant money would help to their groups to spread positive messages about the poultry industry. The Avian Science Club’s video proposal outlined the need to educate the MSU community about the poultry industry and address misguided myths.
