TODAY ON AGDAY
JANUARY 1, 2013

FOOD FOR ALL:

WHAT'S A WORLD WITHOUT HUNGER? WELL, IT'S A WORLD FFA MEMBERS FROM ACROSS THE COUNTRY ARE TRYING TO MAKE A REALITY. GOOD MORNING, I'M TYNE MORGAN FOR THIS SPECIAL EDITION OF AGDAY. THIS PAST YEAR I HAD TO PRIVILEGE OF TRAVELING THE COUNTRY SEEING THE WORK BEING DONE AND TALKING TO FFA MEMBERS GETTING THEIR HANDS DIRTY ALL FOR ONE CAUSE. OUR FIRST STOP - SUNNY CEDAR KEY, FLORIDA. THE WORK BEING DONE IN THIS SMALL FLORIDA TOWN IS HAVING A LASTING IMPACT.

IDAHO FFA:

LIVING IN A REMOTE COMMUNITY IN THE VALLEY OF THE IDAHO MOUNTAINS CREATES CHALLENGES.

OHIO FFA:

WITH A MEMBERSHIP OF 75 STUDENTS, NEARLY HALF OF THE ENTIRE HIGH SCHOOL IN RIDGEWAY, OHIO  ARE MEMBERS OF THE RIDGEMONT FFA.

KENTUCKY FFA:

AS WE'VE BEEN HIGHLIGHTING THIS MORNING, FFA MEMBERS ACROSS THE COUNTRY ARE LEARNING HUNGER IS CLOSER THAN MANY OF US THINK. THAT'S WHY THE CENTRAL HARDIN FFA CHAPTER IN ELIZABETHTOWN, KENTUCKY IS STEPPING-UP TO FACE THAT CHALLENGE BOTH AT HOME, AND  ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD.

OKLAHOMA FFA:

TODAY WE WRAP UP OUR PROFILES OF THE WORK BEING DONE FOR FFA: FOOD FOR ALL WITH A TRIP TO THE SOONER STATE.

HUNGER U:

BECAUSE OF THE SUCCESS IN 2012, THE THREE ORGANIZATIONS HAVE RENEWED THEIR COMMITMENT FOR THIS YEAR, GIVING EVEN MORE FFA CHAPTERS ACROSS THE COUNTRY A CHANCE TO COMBAT HUNGER IN 2013. BUT BEFORE WE GO THIS MORNING, 2012 WAS A BUSY YEAR FOR FARMERS FEEDING THE WORLD. THEY LEFT A LARGE FOOTPRING ON COLLEGE CAMPUSES TOO.
