You notice the food in front of you, but have you ever wondered how your food got here? Although it may not seem like it, we are all connected around the world through various means. One way in which we are all connected is food. But, food grown across the globe must somehow find its way back to you. Food is transported through various means including: ship, airplane, train, and truck.
