ROME, N.Y. – Wagner Farms in Rome is donating popcorn to Vernon-Verona-Sherrill School District to hand out in student lunches.
The popcorn comes from the farm and is packaged so students can pop it at home.
“We scrambled and came up with a product that is microwave ready and safe, and able to be popped by the youngest student -- hopefully supervised. And we are trying to make sure it is engineered safe,” said Ronald Wagner.
The farm is currently distributing yellow hulless popcorn, but plans to do white and colorful popcorn next.
