The Mansfield FFA was the state winner in food collection for the FFA for Food, Fiber, and Shelter (FFS) project.

Senior Brianna McKinney accepted the award during the 92nd Arkansas FFA Convention in Hot Springs.

The local chapter earned the top spot by participating in the backpack program. That program provides for elementary, middle and high school students. Additionally, for their participation in the Pack Shack event, the FFA food pantry and the school garden.

Agriculture teacher and FFA leader Rhianna Wagner said “We have had a huge project that has fed the community for the past 10-12 years. We have won the state food collection award every year for the past four years (since it was founded.)

We will be bringing you more news from the FFA State Convention in the next few days.
