Some children are spending part of the summer at a farm, where they’re helping to grow fruits and vegetables. The premise of the program is that kids who know where food comes from – and how to prepare it – will become healthy adults.
Lauren Haska has a big job, because the kids know little about fruits and veggies in their natural state. She is the Hunger Task Force's educator and dietician at the Franklin farm.
Haska recalls a former student who struggled to pull a carrot from the earth.
