The American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture presented its fifth annual Book of the Year award to Chris Butterworth for "How Did That Get In My Lunchbox? The Story of Food." The book shows young readers how each ingredient made its journey to their lunchbox. Illustrations, by Lucia Gaggiotti, highlight many aspects of farming and include information on food safety and nutrition. The foundation has created an educator's guide and classroom poster as companion pieces. The book may be purchased at the county Farm Bureau office by calling 330.339.7211 or 888.265.2090. The cost is $10. The book will be the theme used by the Farm Bureau at the county fair, county annual meeting and other events throughout this year. What a wonderful message "How Did That Get In My Lunchbox?" has for folks, young and old alike!
