Kids learn the joys of fresh, locally grown foods

On September 26, 2012, in Latest News, by The Somerville Times

Kennedy school students get hands on experience in what it takes to get that stuff that usually comes out of a can in a fresher, tastier form.

Somerville Public schools served locally grown food last week to the kids at school.

Somerville Public Schools students were invited to shuck corn at breakfast on Thursday, September 20, with the Somerville Public Schools Food and Nutrition Services department, Groundwork Somerville and UMass Extension.

This event took place supporting Somerville’s Shape Up Somerville initiative.

Farm fresh corn on the cob from Lanni Orchards was served at lunch and everyone agreed that there’s nothing else better.
