I’m taking advantage of a minute to check back in and tell you about my wheat field!
Remember in December when I told you about How Wheat Works, a great interactive opportunity to learn abut one of the most important crops in America? Well, indeed I did plant a cyber wheat crop and I kept with it after telling you about it.
How Wheat Works is from the Wheat Foods Counciland it’s a neat way to learn a thing or two. Whit all the wheat fields David and I see when we photograph trains, it was very cool to see my bowl of cereal grow up!
It’s a terrific learning tool for kids who will get to choose what kind of wheat they grow by what kind of end product they want. I can also suspect from the number of adults who have Facebook farms, it’s fun for grownups too. I had fun with it! I grew soft wheat to make breakfast cereal. Seeing my products in the cyber store also included some valuable hints for reading the labels and how to know the difference between grain and whole grain products
Now when I eat my Malt-O-Meal hot cereal, I can add to the warmth inside knowing that I’m helping others too. Having completed my journey from the farm to the fork at How Wheat Works, there has been 2 pounds of wheat flour donated to Operation Homefront, a nonprofit organization that assists needy US Troops’ families. ADM and ConAgra foods, two of the world’s largest millers and grain cars we’ve seen on trains that roll by those wheat fields, make the donation to Operation Homefront possible.
