Celebrating FFA Week: FFA students give back

INDIANAPOLIS — FFA students live out their motto “Living to Serve” every day, but they put in extra effort to serve their communities during National FFA Week.

At the National FFA Convention in October, students built Little Free Pantries and sought out recipients for them. They partnered with Corteva Agriscience for the project.

In Indianapolis, Lisa Miles has hosted Little Free Pantries in the past for her community, but her last one was vandalized.

During National FFA Week, students replaced her pantry so she can once again offer food to the community.

In 2021, more than 1,000 FFA members donated 3,113 hours of service in 24 states. Their efforts totaled $88,845 in economic impact.
