A group of Maine 5th-graders were growing yellow onions for a project, but last week the students discovered all the onions had been stolen.

The 5th-graders had been growing the onions as part of a lesson in growing your own food, eating healthy, and helping the less fortunate, The Associated Press reported.

But when students at the Albert S. Hall School in Waterville went out last week to harvest the yellow onions planted last spring, they found that all 100 had been stolen.

Their plan was to give half the onions to a homeless shelter and half to the school kitchen to be used in school lunches.

Student Hannah Hall says the class was sad, and 5th-grader Ashley Harwood called the theft "kind of depressing."

Teacher Mary Dunn says she plans to turn the theft into a lesson anyway, about coming together when things don't go as planned.
