Working Hard For Our Food

Feb 26, 2022

Have you ever stopped to think about how your food made its’ way onto your plate? Who prepared it for you? Where were the ingredients purchased? Who grew and harvested those ingredients?

It’s easy to go to the grocery, pick up a bag of carrots, and to not think twice about how they came to you. But who is putting in the hard work to feed us? Farmers are putting in the daily hard work to grow vegetables and raise livestock to give us quality food.

Vendors and grocers put in the hard work to make sure we have options when it comes to our food. They make sure we can find a wide variety of fruits and veggies to make food fun. When it finally makes it to our plates, moms, dads, friends, siblings, and more take time to cook you a delicious meal.

Without every person putting in the hard work for our food, it would never make it to our plates. Who will you thank for working hard today?
