North Huron FFA Donates 100 Broilers to Kinde & Port Austin Area Community Food Pantry

(KINDE) — North Huron agriscience students recently raised over 450 broilers at the school as part of the Michigan FFA Broiler Contest. Along with taking the best broilers to compete at the contest, students also raised birds to be donated to the Community Food Pantry and birds to be sold to the North Huron cafeteria at a reduced cost. 100 oven ready birds were donated to the Community Food Pantry and 100 were supplied to be used for school lunches at North Huron. One of the main goals of the contest was to provide fresh poultry to community members and students that was raised at the school by agriscience students. In the past 3-years, over 500 pounds of poultry has been donated to the food pantry with help from a National FFA Living to Serve grant. The food pantry helps almost 50 families from the Port Austin, Kinde and Filion areas each week. Donations are always welcome and can be dropped off at Farmer’s Cooperative Grain Company in Kinde and the Kinde Presbyterian Church.
