A Grocery Store is like a Cell- Food Counters/Chloroplast

The Food Counters are like Chloroplasts

The chloroplasts in a plant cell are organelles that contain the green pigment chlorophyll. Chlorophyll helps the cell perform photosynthesis, a process in which the cell takes the raw materials water and carbon dioxide and makes it into food for the plant. The chloroplasts are located all throughout the plant cell and there are usually more than one of them. The food counters at grocery stores include the deli kiosk, salad/soup bar, seafood counter, bakery, and butcher counter. These specialty sections take ingredients and turn them into foods such as bagels or crab cakes. The chloroplasts are similar to the food stands at the grocery store because they both take raw materials and turn them into a finished product.
