Child Nutrition held a corn husking week in September. Corn was ordered from Shaffer Farms, a local farm in the Garland area. Eight schools participated including 7 elementary schools and Bear River Middle School. Students at each school husked the corn, the kitchen staff cooked the corn, and it was enjoyed by all! Students had a great time learning the process of husking and eating the corn on the cob.
