Members of the East Sac FFA chapter, joined the Iowa Soybean Association and GROWMARK, who sponsored the packaging of more than 260,000 soy-based Meals From The Heartland during the 85th Iowa FFA Leadership Conference during April in Ames. Chapter members closest to the camera are, from left, Aubrey Houska, Brandy Wright, Callie Herrig and Tasha Bettin. Nearly 1,500 FFA volunteers took turns measuring and packaging the nutritious meals that will feed people internationally while building demand for Iowa-grown soybeans. This was the second consecutive year that the ISA, Iowa FFA Foundation and Iowa FFA Association partnered in sponsoring the soy-based meals packaging. Combined, nearly 500,000 servings were packaged for distribution.
