Growers plan to recognize teachers through an education week, which includes preparing a meal for school staffs as well as packages of local vegetables.

While children in the more affluent part of the county often give their teachers grocery store gift cards, most of the children’s parents in the economically depressed corn region aren’t involved in their children’s schools. The recognition could show the teachers they’re appreciated, Holt said.
