Lunch Time Recipe and Menu Planner
Week 10

Did You Know?
David Shayt, curator of the National Museum of American History, pins the evolution of the lunch box as beginning in the mid-nineteenth century.  “Some of our earliest examples, from the 19th century, were woven baskets with handles.  A meal would be wrapped in a handkerchief. Depending on your station, a fancy wooden box would be used by the wealthy,” he says.  It wasn't possible to go home to lunch every day when more and more Americans were now working in factories and not on the farm, thus it was necessary to have something to protect and transport a meal in.
