For the third year, students in Mrs. Amiee Pudelka and Mrs. MaryJo Gorcyca’s kindergarten classes grew and harvested fresh vegetables for the Kennett Area Food Cupboard. The garden, located in Anson B. Nixon Park, is a collaborative effort between the school, the food cupboard, and Christine Denno, a former MDLKC parent. In October, the students harvested 47 pounds of fresh vegetables! Wow!
Last year’s efforts in planting, watering, weeding, and harvesting resulted in 480 pounds of healthy, organic food that was donated to the Kennett Food Cupboard.
