Hot food was served here.

Who first sold fast food? Workers dug up this “cook shop” in Pompeii (pom-PAY), Italy.

The shop is two thousand years old! Were duck and chicken on the menu?

Read More: Pompeii was a city in southern Italy. It was near a volcano called Mount Vesuvius. The volcano exploded 2,000 years ago. It covered the city in ash. Workers today carefully dig up what was buried long ago. Many people in the busy city lived in apartment buildings then. These usually had no kitchens. People often ate chicken, seafood, and maybe snails at a thermopolium (hot food cook shop). God blessed Noah after the flood. He said in Genesis 9:3, “Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. And as I gave you the green plants, I give you everything.”
