FFA Helping Food Pantry in Cedar Key
CEDAR KEY - With the dramatic drop in the clam harvest to the weeks - long loss of the city's water supply, people in Cedar Key have had a lot to cope with, and some of them don't know where their next meal is coming from because of it.
One group helping to stock the shelves of the local food pantry is the Future Farmers of America group.
They are growing food, and raising fish and catching fish for the pantry.
They say that one in six people go hungry in the island community.
One seventh grade student says knowing she is able to held end hunger, makes her proud to be a part of the group.
"Knowing that you are so appreciated and needed in the community can really change your life."
The food pantry says at the holiday season they are feeding about 20 more families than they did in the summer months.
Since the FFA group began a year ago, they have donated 1600 pounds of food to the pantry.
