To celebrate Maine Harvest Week, RSU 20 served locally grown food during the week, heard from some local farmers and enjoyed a literary buffet, where books were paired with either fruits or vegetables.

Monday, students at Captain Albert Stevens Elementary School in Belfast enjoyed local beef, grown by Curtis Custom Meats in Warren and melon from Cross Patch Farm in Morrill for lunch.

Students also heard from water buffalo farmers as part of a new program called lunch with a farmer.

Then Mrs. Manning’s third-grade class attended the literary buffet in the library where Lizzie was brave enough to eat an edible flower.
