Food for America is an event held every year to teach the youth about where their food comes from. This year it was held on Friday (11/6/2020) behind the high school. FFA members are assigned stations about what they are supposed to teach the children about. Members will bring live exhibits, equipment, animals, and other agricultural related stuff. The elementary students come over and split into groups. After, they go to their assigned groups, spread out, and they FFA members teach them a short 8 minute lesson. The students will give them time to interact with the animals and ask questions about it. Once the youth leaves, they are educated on where their food comes from and what it takes to raise crop and livestock. We believe this day is a great way to introduce agriculture to the students who might not have the opportunity.
