Almost four hundred fifth grade students from the Neosho School District converged on the district's school farm on Wednesday for the annual Food For America event.
Vocational agriculture and Future Farmers of America students presented a total of 32 stations for the students. Topics including livestock production, wind energy, soil erosion, soil health, conservation, and many food or agricultural products were explored.
185 ag students manned the stations and helped the younger kids travel around the farm.
Ten parents and ag alumni were also on scene to offer a hand.
All three ag advisors were also present.
Volunteers and parents prepared lunch before the students headed back to school.
Food For America is a program designed to assist FFA members and agriculture education students to develop leadership skills as they reach out to youth, peers, and communities.
Neosho High School has an active agricultural education department and a robust FFA program.
