Students at all Somerville elementary schools and Capuano were hard at work early in the morning to get 3,500 ears of local corn from Verrill Farm in Concord, MA shucked so that fresh corn on the cob could be served at lunch that day. Hundreds of students as well as countless volunteers, parents, teachers and staff members joined together to get this mammoth task achieved before the first bell!
By the end of breakfast, not a single ear of corn was left unshucked, impressing all involved how quickly this major task was accomplished. All 3,500 cobs were ready to be cooked off by Food and Nutrition Services staff for lunch (not an easy feat either J)!
