Ag in the classroom day hosted by FFA draws interest in food origin

School students in urban classrooms can sometimes have a disconnect from agriculture and where their food comes from. That's according to Lloyd Lesmeister, one of the FFA leaders from an Agriculture in the Classroom event held on Friday, May 18, at Anderson United Community School in Minneapolis, Minn. Westminster and other FFA leaders spent time educating urban school students about the origins of the food they eat—from corn and soybean production to livestock. This is the third year the Morris Area FFA chapter (Morris, Minn.) has hosted the event in urban schools.
