Hats off to the Ar-We-Va CSD FFA for helping feed families this holiday season.

We're still getting pics in from the 40 student-based organizations that participated in the Ignite the Spirit Program offered by Iowa Select Farms and the Deb and Jeff Hansen Foundation.

These students coordinated the project with the Westside 4-H and AR-WE-VA Student Council, all working together to assemble meal kits for local families in need.

Ignite the Spirit is an extension of the Deb and Jeff Hansen Foundation’s Operation Christmas Meal program and is aimed at increasing awareness of hunger locally and igniting the spirit of service by giving local student groups the tools—pork!—to help even more families during the holiday season.

As part of the program, FFA chapters and 4-H clubs also receive event kits with aprons and masks along with a check for $250 to purchase additional food for the meal.
