With deep roots in the natural and organic food industry that goes back to their time at WSU, Chuck and Louanna Eggert have created this scholarship to benefit students studying organics and agricultural related fields. Chuck and Louanna, who met while attending WSU, founded Pacific Foods in 1987 and have grown it from a small soy milk production company to a global leader in natural food development, sustainable and organic farming, and land stewardship that supports farmers and ranchers. Pacific Foods offers a wide variety of all natural and organic food and beverages and products are sold throughout the United States and Canada in mainstream grocery and natural food stores. The Eggerts also generously donated to expand the WSU Organic Farm, now known as the Eggert Farm, to become a model for research, teaching, and Extension in organic and sustainable agriculture.
Scholarship funds shall be used for students studying organics and/or agricultural related fields.
