2022 theme: From field to fork

Farmers work hard every day to provide us with nutritious food. They produce grains, vegetables and fruit from their fields. They also care for livestock that give us our meat, eggs and honey. You can eat what you grow!

Draw a picture of all the farm-grown food you love to eat.
