Food and Sustainability

The food we eat has a huge effect on people and the environment. Much of that impact is caused by the processing, packaging and transporting food around the world.  In addition,1 billion people in the world today are hungry, because they do not have the means to produce food or to buy it.

Our Food and Sustainability resources include:

  • Starter activities enabling pupils to understand issues around sustainability
  • PPT presentations and activities on Food choice, Food Provenance, sustainability and food security in the UK and internationally
  • Food projects based on real world contexts
  • Links to technical information from our international projects on food production and food processing.

We also have a Sustainability Handbook for D&T teachers which provides an invaluable overview of the big issues around food and sustainability. Find here.
