  • Actually I do. As well as where the food comes from, and if it's from an ethical source. We have had dinners where we have discussed how many hand have touched just one ingredient in something that we are eating. It's very daunting and something about which we, as a country, become very detached.

  • I don't thank any god for the work, we humans do for ourselves. So yes, I thank the farmers every day.

  • I like to go a step further...
    From forest and stream;
    From mountain and field;
    From the fertile Earth's
    Nourishing yield;
    I now partake of
    Divine energy;
    May it lend to health,
    Strength and love to me.
    Blessed Be.

  • No, it's their job and I pay for the food. If they have it to me I would thank them! But I do support the local farmers by buying local.

  • We usually say, "Thank you, God, for this food and for the hands that prepared it. Bless all those who have contributed to this meal. (If we are in a restaurant, we also name the server in the prayer, since we look at the name tag or ask for an introduction when we sit down.) May the food nourish our bodies, minds and souls."

    Sometimes, we use this:

    Back of the bread is the flour,
    Back of the flour is the mill,
    Back of the mill is the sun and rain
    And the Father's will.

    Or, at gatherings with my dad's mostly Catholic family:

    Bless us O Lord and these thy gifts, which we are about to receive from thy bounty, through Christ our Lord, Amen.

    My hubby worked with a lot of migrant workers at a mushroom farm.
    Mushrooms are like 98% water or something like that.
    He caught one of the guys pissing in the mushroom beds.
    Hubby no quiero mushrooms.
