When we understand where our food comes from, we can more deeply appreciate the hard work that goes into growing it. We create a stronger connection with the farmers and people who bring that food to our tables.
As our kids head back to the classroom this fall, it is also important to understand that learning doesn’t end in the classroom. That’s why we talk about farming often in our home. At dinner, when we chat about our day and what we’re grateful for, we thank the farmers for combining their hard work and knowledge to bring meals to our dinner table, and we remember that not everyone has access to an abundance of food. This conversation may look different in your home, and that’s okay. What’s important is that we’re sharing stories to engage our children around agriculture, helping the next generation learn about our food — and feeding children’s natural curiosity for how our meals get to our plates.
