Shout out to the East Sac FFA Chapter for helping feed families this holiday season.
We're still getting pictures from the almost 50 student-based organizations that participated in the Ignite the Spirit Program offered by Iowa Select Farms and the Deb and Jeff Hansen Foundation, and these are just in!
FFA members worked with their local food pantry to package full meal kits for 24 different families in need. The students picked out recipes that use pork loins and gave the families all the necessary ingredients to make a good meal to share with their families for the holidays. The meal kits were passed out with the help of the food pantry.
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.
