A Way to Give To Those in Need in 2010

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Wheat Food Council. All opinions are 100% mine.


I am truly excited to share about a website, How Wheat Works.com. because it offers everyone a simple, fun and educational resource to help needy U.S. Troops and their families. When you visit How Wheat Works you can sign up and learn how to grow and harvest wheat, virtually! There are four phases – growth, harvest, milling/baking and the grocer’s aisle -each takes just a few minutes to complete, while the program spans the course of four days.
Interactive opportunities include the selection of the type of wheat to be grown and wheat flour to be milled.
There are activity suggestions at the end of each phase which allow participants to extend their learning experience through preparing wheat-based recipes, exploring wheat grown in their area through our state wheat commission member sites and viewing harvest videos from “America’s Heartland.” This sounds cool for 'kids' of all ages, young and old. The Wheat Foods Councilis extending this program to the youth through www.wheatfoods.org. as well.
But like I said, the very best part of doing and completing this interactive program is that for each participant, the Council will donate two pounds of flour, up to 90,000 pounds, to Operation Homefront, a non-profit that provides assistance to needy U.S. troops and their families.
This donation is made possible by members at ADM and ConAgra Mills, two of the world’s largest millers.
