Geocache Description:

Cache IS at the posted coordinates, but you MUST fulfill the requirements in order to log a find on this cache!

Using the USDA Food Guide Pyramid A Guide to Daily Food Choices, as a guideline for this caching challenge.

To complete this cache challenge you must find caches with a type of food name in the cache title that corresponds to the group in the food guide pyramid. Cache names must contain either a generic name of the group, or a specific item from that group.

Past Finds are allowed.
Your own hides DO NOT count.

Names within a single category do not need to be unique. If you find 6 different caches with "bread" in the title, then each may be a separate entry.
