The FFA, Lunchroom Manager Jenelle Ellison, and her staff joined to "Feed ICHS/ICMS Today"...and they did it deliciously!
Miss Jenelle said to the FFA, "If y'all will grow it, my staff and I will cook and serve it."
BBQ - Swine grown on CASE Farm...used Boston Butts for BBQ,
Peas - Drew Tucker (FFA officer)....grew, picked, shelled, blanched, and processed,
Sweet Corn on the Cob - Grown on campus, FFA officers and Tristan Billingsley picked, shucked, and processed the corn,
Corn Bread - made from corn meal produced at the CASE Farm by processing corn into grits and corn meal,
Grapes - Grown by Irwin County Board Member, Gary Paulk.
In the Spring the FFA did FEED MY SCHOOL for the Elementary School, providing them a breakfast that included locally-grown products.
The FEED MY SCHOOL Program is to bring awareness to agriculture and use locally-produced products to furnish a meal for the students and staff. Eighty percent of Irwin County's tax base is derived from agriculture.
