PENDLETON, OR - Students in Future Farmers of America (FFA) at Pendleton High School are helping to put food on the table for local families in need.
FFA students at the school have been collecting bulk fruits and vegetables from farmers throughout the state as part of their service learning project, known as Food for All.
This year, the group collected 17,000 pounds of fruits and vegetables.
Students put in countless hours making phone calls to different farms. They then hauled the food from the farms using trucks and trailers, and are now in the process of delivering the produce to churches, senior centers and other food banks in the Pendleton and Pilot Rock area.
FFA was founded back in the 1920s to promote and support agricultural education among middle school and high school students.
