Meals from the Heartland
by Joclyn Bower

On March 12, 2014 Murray School and some of its community helped package meals to send to those who are less fortunate. The students of Murray School helped reach a goal of 50,000 meals, which required FFA to raise $10,000. Murray FFA also had a goal set to have 75 volunteers from outside of the school to help. The result was over $12,000 was raised through grants and organizations' donations. There were 61,560 meals packaged March 12, 2014. Overall, 111 volunteers came to help including all the Murray students and staff. They had to sort out rice into small packages, weigh it, seal it, and box them. It took nearly 2 hours and 15 minutes to complete the goal. A majority of people like to help package the meals while others felt they were forced to help. "I like the Meals for the Heartland because it was for a good cause and it was fun for everybody to work together," said Katie Otto.

Poverty Dinner
by Bailey Brummel

On March 12th the Murray FFA held a poverty dinner. The main goal of this activity was to teach others about the importance of appreciating what you already have. During this activity, Courtney Siefkas made different scenarios that affected your class from the wealthy, middle class, and the poor. For this activity the whole high school was involved and gathered in the gym during 4th hour. It was a successful learning opportunity for most and everyone went home with a new knowledge about the food crisis all over the world.
