FFA raises funds for Snack in a Pack

FFA raises funds for Snack in a Pack


The Waynesville Future Farmers of America (FFA) celebrated National FFA Week “Transform Purpose to Action” on Feb. 18-25. The local Waynesville FFA raised $113 for the Waynesville R-VI School District’s Snack in a Pack (SIAP) program by hosting a “Waynesville Hat Day.”


SIAP provides approximately 320 students a weekly supplemental food pack for students who might otherwise go hungry on weekends and holiday breaks, with each pack costing an average of $5. The Waynesville FFA’s service to the community will provide approximately 23 students a supplemental food pack for one weekend.


Throughout National FFA Week, chapters conducted a variety of activities to help others in their school and community learn about FFA and agricultural education. Today’s FFA members embrace 89 years of FFA traditions and are the innovators and leaders of tomorrow.
