Students in the Agribusiness Entrepreneurship Program at Texas A&M University set a food donation record this semester with more than a ton of nonperishable food and paper goods donated to the Brazos Valley Food Bank.

For the past five years, Ed Rister, a professor and associate department head in the department of agricultural economics, has encouraged students in his classes to donate food, paper goods and toiletries. He challenges his students each year to exceed the prior year’s donations. This year, the donated goods weighed 2,137 pounds.
