Termly Project

Term 2 Topic Project – A Global Meal

To be completed by Friday 4th December

 

Have a look through your food cupboards, fridge or freezer at home. Choose some of the items you have found to make a meal, list them below, then use the label to find their ‘country of origin’.

How far has your meal travelled?

 

Use Google maps to travel from the capital city of each of your food’s origins to the UK. List how far each is away! Add these up to calculate how far your meal has travelled in total.

Option 1 – Food miles
Food miles are an increasing problem. Can you research and find alternative ingredients for your meal so it is more locally sourced?
How would this change the price of your meal?


Option 2 – Fair trade
Fair trade products ensure farmers and producers earn a fair wage for their work. Can you research and find alternative ingredients for your meal so it is made from fair trade ingredients as much as possible?
How would this change the price of your meal?


Try to cook your meal! We would love to see a photo of your dish :)
