Massachusetts Harvest for Students Week

September 27th-October 1st is Massachusetts Harvest for Students week!  Somerville School Food Services, Groundwork Somerville, and Shape-up Somerville are teaming up for a fun week with students and food!

Groundwork Somerville youth program participants planted and tended basil this summer in our school yard gardens.  This week our hard work will be rewarded: our basil will be served in school lunches!

On Thursday morning, Groundwork Somerville staff, interns, and volunteers will be helping Somerville students shuck Lanni Orchards corn (don’t worry, our husks will be composted – not thrown out!).  The cobs will then be cooked and served to all students for lunch across the city!
