Mahnomen, MN — The Mahnomen FFA invite Mahnomen County First Responders and all area community members to their 4th annual First Responder Appreciation Feed today at the Mahnomen Farmer’s Market Shelter on South Main Street. They will be serving at both lunch, from 11-1, and supper, from 5-7pm. The cost is $6, but is free for Mahnomen County first responders. Jenna Bendickson, Mahnomen FFA advisor, says they started this event a handful of years ago to not only show their appreciation towards the area fireman, EMS, and law enforcement, but to help raise money for their needs as well.

This year the Mahnomen FFA is raising money to purchase safe needle drop boxes that will be located throughout the community.

While FFA may be rooted to agriculture, it’s roots also run deep in leadership and community service and Bendickson says this event is an excellent example of that.

The Mahnomen FFA is serving up a choice of burger or brat, chips, beans, and a beverage as part of today’s First Responder Appreciation Picnic.
