This week we celebrate National FFA Week at Foley High School. Along with the more than 650,000 FFA members from around the country we will be creating an awareness of FFA opportunities this week. We will have our annual Trivia contests question each day for students and staff to learn more about Agriculture and FFA.
Todays FFA Trivia Question: American Agriculture faces an ever increasing challenge of feeding this growing world. A factor that compounds this problem is the waste of food supply. What % of our processed food supply is wasted in the United States by our consumers?
Students and staff can place their answers in the FFA Trivia box in the cafeteria or staff lounge. We have famous FFA popcorn for prizes to the winner.
