Newark FFA Chapter Participates in the Million Can Challenge

The Newark FFA chapter participated in the Million Can Challenge sponsored by the National FFA Alumni and the Toyota Corporation. FFA members collected canned and non-perishable food the months of November and December. Over 500 lbs of canned food and fresh fruit was donated to the Kendall County Food Pantry. The National FFA Alumni and Toyota have teamed up to raise awareness of the need for food for the needy is needed throughout the year not just at holiday time. The Chapter will collect food all year long and will be given to local food pantries.
