2018-19 FFA Hunger Challenge underway

Last year 227 Oklahoma FFA chapters donated 584 animals, along $5,037 through the Cents Make Sense Program, for the 2018-19 Hunger Challenge. The donations produced more than 1 million protein sticks for Oklahomans who struggle with hunger.

More than 632,000 Oklahomans are at risk of going hungry every day. FFA members are making a difference and will continue to make a difference in fighting hunger. The FFA Hunger Challenge poster and video explain the details of the challenge.
