Angelica Gallegos gingerly began the task at hand of stripping corn from the stalks in the large garden behind Memorial Middle School.
Then came a surprise.
As she shucked her first piece, the corn went flying when she saw an earworm looking up at her.
Peter Skelton, director of agricultural development at the middle school, said Gallegos and other students in the FFA program at Robertson High School volunteered their time after school to pick produce that they donate to local hunger relief. They have donated more than 1,300 pounds of produce to local organizations.
