What’s in Your Lunchbox Kits

What’s in Your Lunchbox Kits

What happens to food between growing on the farm and selling at the grocery store?  We’ve developed some resources that explore our food system for young learners.  We utilize the book “How did that get in my Lunchbox” by Chris Butterworth.  Making the connection between food and where it comes from can lead to healthier eating choices, a better appreciation for agriculture and an understanding of a student’s own connection to the larger food system.
