Should we eat seasonally? Is it ok to import food?
We learned about seasonality and how it is possible to buy foods in supermarkets that are out of season.
Pretending to be chefs, we designed a seasonal menu for a given month using seasonality calendars.
We then talked about the environmental impact of importing foods, and learnt what food mileage was all about.
We had a discussion about whether it is okay to import food, and realised it was a very complex issue.
Looking at food packaging we investigated how far food had travelled to end up on our plate. We used mapping skills and locational knowledge to annotate a world map and show just how far these products had travelled.
