MORAN ? The Marmaton Valley High School gymnasium was transformed into a bustling factory floor Friday afternoon when dozens of area FFA members ? led by a group from Moran ? assembled in lines to package, seal, and box 13,000 meals destined to fill the hungry bellies of area families in need. 

The food and supplies were provided by Something to Eat, a Kansas City-based organization, whose public mission is to facilitate large, nationwide ?packing events,? in which young people can learn about the perils of food insecurity in their community while at the same participating in a hands-on fix. 

The manpower was provided by FFA members from Moran, Humboldt, Iola and Chanute.
