ALBION – Albion FFA students load a flatbed trailer this morning with produce donated by local farmers. This is the FFA’s 10thannual food drive. Last year there was 35,000 pounds delivered to Community Action.

There isn’t a final tally available yet today, but FFA members said it looks like there is more food this year.
