Center of the Plate – Texas FFA & 4-H Members Rally Community to Feed Families-in-Need

Center of the Plate, a local non-profit, public charity, donated over 1,200 pounds of beef and pork to four families in need in Dripping Springs. Through combined efforts with their community, Dripping Springs FFA and 4-H members are driving Center of the Plate energies to provide essential meat protein to 22 family members.

Five hogs and one beef steer were donated by FFA and 4-H members to the Center of the Plate for processing into beef and pork. “Our desire with this initiative is to have a deep impact on multiple families in our community,” said Grace Baxter, co-founder of Center of the Plate and Dripping Springs FFA and
4-H member. “Providing over 300 pounds to each family will result in meat on the table for at least four months.”
