Mississinawa Valley- MVCTC FFA Hosts Annual Food for America Day

Second year agriculture students, Daisy Brim, Bailey Johnson, and Olivia Murphy taught students about the life cycle of a chick!
On Friday, April 22, the Mississinawa Valley-MVCTC FFA chapter held its annual Food for America Day. The second-year agricultural students planned 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 Kindergarten through 3rd grade came to see the different stations. At each station, presenters shared about different agricultural topics. The stations included proper hand washing techniques, soil and how it helps our environment, growing soybeans, aquaculture, and learning different facts about animals. Each station included hands-on activities as well as a presentation about the information for each of the topics. The activities included learning about how to be safe around horses, learning the layers of soil and eating dirt pudding, milking a cow, and learning about aquaculture.

The day was an educational experience for the younger children as well as the high schoolers, who planned the whole day and took on the leadership positions. Paxton Scholl served as co-chair to this event. She shared, “The co-chairs and students all did a fantastic job at working together and managing their time to make this event a success.” Food for America day was a big success and hopefully will continue being successful for years to come.

Mississinawa Valley- MVCTC Agriculture Program is a satellite of Miami Valley Career Technology Center.
