A student in room 3 took you question and came up with this good answer.
Well, food started mostly on animals, trees and plants.
We get most of our food from animals. For example, we get our bacon and ham from pigs and our steak and a lot of other meat from cows. Another thing we get fro cows is milk. Those are a few things that come from animals.
Lots of food also comes from plants and trees. Vegatables come from plants. They are picked, washed and sometimes cooked to taste better.
We also took a look at the Comptons Encyclopedia and found a good drawing showing how food gets put into cans. The food could be tomatoes, peas or many other foods that preserve well in cans.% % filename A056.DOC
