Home schooled students in the Yakima Valley are packing away hunger one crate at a time.

The sixth through twelth graders and parents logged off their computers and stepped into Northwest Harvest to help peel corn for packing.

It's part of their 20 hours of community service needed in order to graduate.

 Parents say it also provides their child a chance to meet and make friends with other online and home schooled students.

"When we get to out on the community like this, we get to socialize with other people that are not also in a regular classroom, and they know what we are going through. And so I think it's really great," said Tammy Goodman.

The food the students and parents pack will go to local food banks in the area.
