Oxfam Global Food Challenge for 7-11 years

KS2: ages 7-11PDFPowerpoint

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 7-11 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.
