Food packages created to distribute in 48 West Virginia counties
JACKSON COUNTY, WV (WCHS/WVAH) —
Hundreds of Future Farmers of America members packed up food for a statewide distribution Friday.
At the 89th annual West Virginia state convention, children and adult volunteers worked to create food packages that the Mountaineer Food Bank will distribute.
This food will reach 48 counties in West Virginia.
West Virginia FFA Central Region Vice President Abagail Poling said this is the second year the event has happened.
"For FFA members, it's very important to us because in our motto we say "living to serve," and if we don't teach them as state officers and advisers to serve, then how are we going to lead by example?" Poling said.
More than 1,300 packages will be distributed.
