On Friday, Jan. 27, 14 members of the Madison-Plains FFA Chapter gathered at the Mid-Ohio Food Bank facility in Grove City to sort and pack frozen food for local families in need.
Madison-Plains’ members sorted and boxed 8,934 pounds of food, much higher than the average 5,000 to 7,000 pounds packed by a volunteer group.
Madison-Plains FFA president Morgan Hunter was among those members who volunteered for the event.
“This event shows students that it’s not always as easy as going to the grocery store to pick up what you want. Many have to live off what is given to them,” Hunter said.
She hopes that this event reminds students to be thankful for what they have. Due to the success of the event, the chapter is looking forward to volunteering again in the spring.
