March 10th National Pack Your Lunch Day

March 10th National Pack Your Lunch Day

People have been packing their lunch for nearly as long as they have been on earth. Packing your lunch is a pretty good idea. You will generally end up with food you like and is good for you. I’ll bet you’ll even find that cavemen occasionally packed a lunch as they went hunting or avoided being hunted (ok maybe not – but it is fun to think of a cave somewhere with a drawing of a caveman carrying a Flintstones lunch box). Paper bags normally serve the purpose but in 1935 the first lunch box was put out on the market for sale. Can you guess whose image was plastered all over the front of it?…….. Yep, Mickey Mouse.

How to celebrate – Pack your own lunch today. If you supervise someone packing your lunch does that count? Brown bag it!
