Coronado FFA starts annual Hatch chile sale

It’s that time of the year again when the smell of freshly roasted chile is in the air, and the Coronado High School FFA Chapter is ready to fulfill your green chile and jalapeño needs.

“Our FFA members are earning to live and living to serve. Our members take the role of leaders, earning money for our chapter,” Agriculture Science teacher Sheila Merriman-Parr said. “This fundraiser is an opportunity for our students to engage with the community about agriculture and its importance within our community.”

The club is selling roasted green chile and jalapeños and is looking for buyers. They have 20 and 40 pound bags of Hatch long green chile and 10, 20 and 30 pound bags of Hatch jalapeños. The chile is harvested the day before it is roasted to ensure the maximum freshness.

All proceeds from the fundraiser will directly benefit the students and help them travel and compete at events, such as career and leadership development events.

The FFA Chapter will have two dates available for pick up: Aug. 22 and Sept. 5.
