Where Does Your Food Come From?

This weeks featured activity is another from our Ice World activities. It looks at how far the food we eat has traveled, or its food miles. There are two parts to the activity:

  • Part 1: Individual work – keeping a food diary looking at the raw ingredients in meals eaten at home and where they have come from.
  • Part 2: Bringing it all together – making a class wall chart collating the results and highlighting the proportions of food that come from the UK and abroad.

This provides a basis for looking at how much energy goes into getting our food from A to B, and exploring how this might be reduced by eating local, seasonal produce. So get ready to start thinking Global as we eat local.
