This Zoom session is from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. EST: Combining Scholarship and Activism: An Intergenerational Exchange. Information about the session and registration is HERE. Bob Gottlieb and I will address how to combine food policy scholarship and activism in discussion with two much younger colleagues, Ivonne Quiroz and Lo Anderson.
Middle school food curriculum: Nourish
A new middle-school curriculum guide released by WorldLink and the Center for Ecoliteracy invites students and teachers to ask, “What’s the story of my food?” Nourish: Food + Community, they say, is part of a national initiative—one that combines PBS programming, curriculum resources, website content, teacher seminars, and youth summits. Its purpose? To increase food literacy.
We want students to explore the question: How do the food choices we make—individually and as a society—affect the health of people and the environment?
The Center for Ecoliteracy is a nonprofit dedicated to education for sustainable living. It also publishes the guide, Rethinking School Lunch, the curriculum guide to the film, Food, Inc. and other useful publications.
I get asked all the time for resources about how to fix school lunches. Thanks to the Center for making this easier.
