Mission: To increase agricultural literacy through PreK-12 education in Florida.

Vision: To be the leading collaborator and trusted provider of agricultural literacy resources and teacher professional development programs.

Florida Agriculture in the Classroom, Inc. (FAITC) is a non-profit organization that develops and trains teachers and agriculture industry volunteers in its agricultural curricula and materials, which they in turn use to educate students about the importance of agriculture.

It also provides grant money to teachers and volunteers for projects that teach students where their food comes from, and the important contributions Florida farmers make to their communities and their state.

Florida Agriculture in the Classroom is funded by sales of the specialty agricultural license plate known as the Ag Tag. Your Ag Tag purchase allows Florida Agriculture in the Classroom to:

  • Hold Florida’s Agriculture Literacy Day, in which thousands of industry volunteers read to tens of thousands of students every year.
  • Award more than $600,000 in teacher and volunteer grant money since the program’s inception.
  • Sponsor more than 15 workshops a year.
  • Send teachers to the National AITC Conference.
