CHAMPAIGN -- Hundreds of kindergarteners spent the day at college. They visited Parkland to find the answer to the question, "Where does our food come from?"

They visited seven interactive stations featuring animals and produce. The field trip was meant to coincide with the science unit each class is covering.

The district called the event "Local Kids Meet Local Foods." More than 500-kids took part. Each class received pumpkins to take back to school with them to continue the lessons.
