ALBION – Albion FFA members Brian Bentley, front left, and Riley Kelly, unload a tractor trailer full of produce this morning at Community Action of Orleans & Genesee.

The Albion FFA worked with several local farmers to give 19,000 pounds of produce to Community Action. The agency in Albion then shared the produce with food pantries in Albion, Medina, Lyndonville and Holley.

This is the fourth year the FFA has teamed with farmers for the food collection and distribution. The output has grown from 3,000 pounds in 2010 to 9,000, 17,000 and now 19,000.

Orleans Hub will have more on this year’s effort later today.
