Rehobeth High School FFA Making A Difference

By  | 

Members of Rehobeth High School Future Farmers of America are taking steps to feed the homeless in our area.
By planting, growing and harvesting vegetables, they are helping those, who otherwise, wouldn't have the resources to help themselves.

Rehobeth High School's FFA have an on campus garden that is making contributions to the community.

"We were ranked highest of food insecurity, so we started it and thought we could help out around our area to feed the people who don't have the means for food," says Rehobeth High School FFA President Megan Findeisen.

"We didn't realize that we had people in our own school that were going to bed hungry and that doesn't sit very well with us and we were like we need to do something about it, " says Vice President of Rehobeth High School FFA Catherine Andress.

The garden got started back in January, all with one idea in mind.

"They need to know how good we have it because there are people that are struggling and learn that it just feel so much better to give than to be a taker all the time, then to receive, " says Agri-Science Teacher at Rehobeth High School Brad Willis.

"We take for granted what we have and i think that seeing people that are actually in need of something is important so that we get a grasp on what other people go through, " says Findeisen.

"It really helps the students at our schools and our officers realize how truly blessed we are, we have it so good, " says Rehobeth High School FFA Reporter, Jordan Willis.

With the community's support, this is one cause that doesnt plan on stopping anytime soon.

"We want to continue this as long as we can, we want grant money so we can go and have a walk in cooler, we want to grow, we just want to grow this huge," says Andress.

"We have fun working out there, i know it gets hot and sweaty but its fun," says Jordan Willis.

Rehobeth FFA members agree that without the help of local companies, they wouldn't be where they are today.

Rehobeth FFA grows fruits and vegetables like corn, tomatoes, peppers, and watermelon.
