Independence FFA Feeds Local Farmers

On Saturday, October 15 the Independence FFA Chapter delivered meals to area farmers harvesting in the field. They call this event “Fed in the Field”. Over 75 meals were delivered consisting of pulled pork sandwiches, fruit, baked beans, cookies, and chips. To receive these meals the farmers had to be nominated by community members. Chapter President, Tanner Erickson-Dale, says, “I believe that Fed in the Field is a great way to give back to some of our local farmers. Without their support of our FFA Chapter our program would not be as strong as it is. We as a chapter greatly appreciate what all farmers do for the world as a whole.” Fed in the Field has been one of the main events for the Independence FFA Chapter the last three years. This great tradition will continue on next year.
