FFA hosts annual Food for America event

On Wednesday, May 17, DeForest FFA  hosted their annual Food for America event, inviting 280 of the district’s four grade students to Blue Star Dairy in DeForest.  According to FFA advisor Gwen Boettcher, “FFA members worked in small groups to teach 4th graders everything from wildlife management to how to milk a cow.”

“Usually, this event is hosted on the grounds of the high school but this year we tried something new,” said Boettcher.  The event was hosted by Blue Star Dairy, the Meinholz family farm in DeForest.
