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 11-14 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.
