OHS FFA completes Meals of Hope project

Posted

Owensville High School FFA chapter members helped raise $4,700 during the pandemic-abbreviated spring 2020 semester for the Meals of Hope project. Brian LaValle, an American Family Insurance agent and former FFA member at OHS, worked with OHS staff to coordinate the fund-raising effort with assistance from Jason Kopp. Their efforts to complete the project were realized this spring as FFA members packaged the bulk ingredients for the sealed meal packets as a group on March 10.  FFA members followed recipes and mixing instructions to prepare meals like fortified bean and rice casseroles which were vacuum-sealed in serving-specific bags which included labeling for contents and nutritional values. Boxes of the assorted meals were prepared and stacked. Kopp worked with Wade Orscheln to load two pallets of the finished boxes and then helped Paul Helfey and Andrew Michel off-load them at the Helping Hands Outreach Center of Gasconade County.
