McCollum High School JROTC cadets recently volunteered their time to service learning at Mission San Juan Capistrano to support and learn about the community.

“This year’s project consists of an agricultural experience where they learn about the historical value of the mission by planting, growing and harvesting vegetables as was once done back in the 1700s,” MHS Senior Military Instructor James Roybal explained. “Crops harvested provided food to the other missions and the Alamo.”

As a result, they’ll be feeding more than just their minds.

The crops grown and harvested by cadets will be donated to the San Antonio Food Bank and other local charities.
