Shout out to the West Marshall 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!
These FFA members recognized a need in their community and to meet that need they prepared boxed meals for families. The meals were then distributed with the help of a local church, reaching anywhere from 150 to 200 people.
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.
