Sustainability is More Than Just a Buzzword

Sustainability has become a buzzword over the past several years, and for good reason. Sustainability is not something I ever remember hearing about as a kid, but it's definitely something we all need to keep in mind, especially when it comes to our food. McDonald's certainly understands how important sustainability is - that's one reason why they created the Agriculture Scholarship Awards.

McDonald’s as a whole is committed to sustainable agriculture practices and locally-owned and operated McDonald’s organizations aim to directly support those in the local community with a future in agriculture through this scholarship award program.
