This spring, as you plan your chapter events, consider an activity that will help combat hunger across the U.S. You can follow the lead of many other FFA chapters and state associations that have organized food packing parties through the Meals of Hope organization. To date, Meals of Hope has packaged and distributed more than 30 million meals.
All meals packed by your FFA chapter will be provided to recipients free of charge through well-established food banks throughout the country. To a child who is dealing with the stress and insecurity of not knowing how or when they will receive their next meal, a comforting bowl of macaroni and cheese or beans and rice (both fortified with soy protein and 21 vitamins and minerals), provides a bit of hope to carry them through another day.
