Seneca FFA Porkchop Lunch
Seneca FFA to Host Pork Chop “Food For All”
The members of the Seneca FFA are hungry for some pork chops and they hope you are, too.
The Seneca FFA will be serving their traditional two pork chop lunch with all the fixings on Sunday, February 28th from 11:00 AM until 1:00 PM in drive-by fashion. Order must be placed ahead of time by Wednesday, February 24th, by visiting the Seneca High School website (www.senecahs.org) and clicking on the pork chop. Orders may also be placed by calling the SHS Ag Ed Department at 815-357-5024. Meals will be picked up at the ag shop.
But there is a catch: If you are unable to pay, you don’t have to.
“To support our programs, The Seneca FFA has made a profit off of our pork chops for years from people who had the financial means to do so,” explained FFA officer, Ethan Brockman. “For this lunch, we want to include meals for our community’s families even if they are financially challenged.“
“We are doing this for those who may not have the means and just want a good, warm meal for their family after a long pandemic and cold winter,” said FFA senior, Madison Bromberek. “We hope that people who are fiscally able will pay for their meal and may even chip in a little extra for the car behind them that can’t afford it. We want to do it in a way that no one will know if you paid or not.”
After picking up their meal, participants will be given an envelope. Whether or not they put anything into the envelope before depositing it in a box is up to them.
The suggested donation for a meal is $10.00 per meal, but again, is not mandatory.
Any profit made from the meal will be donated to the Seneca and Mazon Food Pantries.
