Have you ever brought your lunch to school in a lunchbox? Who was the first cartoon character to appear on a lunchbox? What are lunchboxes called in India? On this episode of Time For Lunch, Hannah and Harry are taking it to-go and learning about the tastiest of all accessories: the lunchbox! In previous years, this handy tool was essential for school children, and even adults, to eat their mid-day meal. We’ll speak with Allen Woodall Jr. who runs the Lunchbox Museum in Columbus Georgia, learn a delicious lunchtime recipe, and hear a hilarious joke from our friend Frank.
