MV FFA Hosts Annual Food for America Day

On Friday, April 24, 2015, the Mississinawa Valley FFA held its annual Food for America Day. Sophomores in the Advanced Agriculture classes planed the event which consisted of a petting zoo and several stations to educate children about the different aspects of agriculture. During the day students from Pre-K through 3rd grade came to see the different stations. At each station knowledge, students from the Advanced Ag class talked about different topics. The topics included proper hand washing techniques gardening, soil and how it helps our environment, how to turn milk into ice cream, and different learning facts about animals. Each station included hands-on activities as well as a presentation about information for each of the topics. Some of the activities included identifying different types of cow and the differences between dairy and beef, learning the layers of soil and eating dirt pudding, and milking a cow.

The day was an educational experience for the younger children as well as the Advanced Ag students, who planned the whole day and took on leadership positions. Food for America day was a big success and hopefully will continue being successful for years to come.
