Food is an essential part of our daily life. It is not only important to sustaining life, but it is also important to traditions, celebrations, and personal identity. However, there are many global issues surrounding food today. Food production, consumption, and waste are impacted and impact both local and global economics and well-being. From sustainability practices, to food access, to choices in what we eat, there are many complex issues that we need to answer as a global society in the next few decades.Additionally, in our interconnected world, the food choices made in every community has a global impact. In this unit, we will explore why we eat what we eat and how we can make a difference in ways food is produced, accessed, consumed and wasted in our local and global communities. First, we will investigate food habits around the world and compare them with our own habits through reading various texts, class discussions, and surveying others. Then, we will take action by creating our own texts to share with others and inform them of issues surrounding food at a local and/or global level.Additionally, this unit connects with multiple UN Sustainable Development Goals, including #2 Zero Hunger, #3 Good Health and Well-being, and #12 Responsible Consumption and Production, as well as touching on many others.
