ENID, Okla. — On Nov. 9, Waynoka FFA members assisted Woods County Extension in bringing the Farm to You program to the Waynoka elementary students.

Farm to You is a 40-foot by 40-foot enclosed walk-through exhibit. It has nine interactive learning stations where students participate in activities and learn about the relationship between agriculture, food and health. Students make their way through the exhibit by visiting unique stations. The stations include Cheeseburger Farm, To Market, Healthy Cool Café, Mouth, Stomach, Small Intestine, Muscle, Bone and Skin.

Students learn that farms provide healthy food, how to use food labels to make healthy choices and learn about the digestive system.

FFA members assisted by setting up the exhibit, teaching and helping the students at the different stations.
