Description

Currently the world agriculture produces the equivalent of 2,200 calories per person per day. So, why are there still billions of people suffering from malnutrition? How is it possible that while many go hungry other suffer from the health consequences of excess calorie intake such as heart disease and diabetes? In this course we will examine how our food system got here and what are challenges and possibilities moving forward. We will cover 3 main sections: (1) food literacy and nutrition, (2), our local food system and (3) health and food justice. For each section there will be an assigned reading and class discussions. As a community based learning course, students will create a lesson for middle school students that addresses the topics learned in class. These lessons will be taught by the students at a local middle school as part of the course.
