Global food issues are complex. While supplies have surpassed population growth, 821 million people still go to bed hungry every night.
This resource will help learners aged 7-11 to understand how global supply chains currently work; where our food comes from, and some of the challenges facing the small-scale farmers who produce it. Learners can also explore how to advocate for a fairer and more sustainable global food system.
- Discuss the causes and consequences of being hungry
- Investigate the contents of a supermarket bag
- Discover the challenges for small-scale farmers in Malawi
- Play a snakes and ladders game to explore how small-scale farmers are adapting
- Make connections along the strawberry supply chain from Morocco to the UK
- Use a simulation game to understand the global food system
- Take action for a fairer food system
