This is the child that learned from the parent who volunteered to help teach the children how to peel the sweet potatoes the teacher bought from Marty the farmer who brought the sweet potatoes to the DuPont Market.

This is the meal  the children and the parent and the teacher made with the sweet potatoes that Marty the farmer brought to the DuPont Market.

These are the faces of the children enjoying those sweet potatoes!
