Have you ever stopped to think about all of the knowledge, patience, and hard work that's gone into that pre-sliced loaf of bread that many of us casually pick up during our weekly grocery shops? Honestly, I haven't given it much thought either, but the Wheat Foods Council has created an educational and eye-opening tool that provides all of this information and more while benefitting needy U.S. Troops and their families.
Visit How Wheat Works and register to learn, well, how wheat works! When you register and complete each of the four phases -- growth, harvest, milling/baking and the grocer’s aisle -- you'll have gained a new appreciation for that loaf of bread. Each phase takes only a few minutes to complete, and when you confirm your participation, the Council will donate two pounds of flour, up to 90,000 pounds, to Operation Homefront!
What a fantastic way to give back to others that costs you only a few minutes of your time. Better yet, share the experience with your family and make it an educational experience for all.
I've only made it through the first phase, but I've learned several interesting facts about wheat, including that there have been grains found that date back over 10,000 years in Egypt and southwest Asia!
