I don't think any of us really knew what to expect, but I really don't think any of us thought it would be as much fun as it was... I asked my mom if we could go again the next day. (She said no, I had school.)
That's fine, I said. Then, I had a great idea... I asked if I could have my birthday party there this year. Let me tell you about the day... read it and let me know if you would like to be on the invite list.
First, we got to leave school and take the bus to their place. When we arrived we had to wash our hands and put on hair nets. They had us all sit in a room to watch a video and explain what we would be doing.
Next, we went into a big room with a bunch of packing stations. We all lined up around the room and got more instructions about how to pack the meals that would be shipped all over the world.
We broke up into teams and starting working. It didn't really feel like work.
We had a system and worked like a team.
We got to try out all of the different parts of the process.
The different parts even have a little chant.... While one person is holding the bag on the funnel, a few other would pack in the food.... Chicken (powder), vegetables (dried), soy (powder) and rice.
