The FFA motto is “Learning to do, doing to learn, earning to live, and living to serve”.
On Saturday, November 9th, twenty Royal FFA members and officers traveled to the Brookshire Food Bank/Red Cross facility to perform the final line of that motto. A semi-truck full of fresh produce, canned goods, and other non-perishable items were unloaded and stacked throughout the parking lot. The FFA members walked the food rows with the public and helped them place the items into their vehicles. The food bank service project mission was to ensure that every person had a stocked pantry. Once the families had taken what they could, the members then moved the leftover items into the Food Bank storage room, to be dispersed at a later date. “Everybody there was so kind and enthusiastic! It was actually a really fun experience,” Melani Alanis, an attending FFA officer commented. In the FFA, there is no doubt that our community plays a major role in our chapter’s success, and it is a blessing to give back the same support to those in need and all of our friends in the community.
