FFA Buzz - October 2012

Feeding the World–Starting at Home
Today, millions of Americans struggle with hunger. These are often hard-working adults, children and seniors who simply cannot make ends meet and are forced to go without food for several meals, or even days. See how FFA chapters throughout the country are fighting hunger in their communities.

On October 9, the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Office of Public Engagement welcomed FFA members and their mentors to the White House to recognize the exceptional ways they are impacting their communities. To read more on the honorees, visit the National FFA Blog.

Not just sows, cows and plows
