Ideas for the future -
With the prediction that food prices will rise and the fact that they have already increased, connect t to that the fact that so much of the food that is purchased goes to landfill and what equations can you come up with?
- We need to change the way we shop for food!
- Those who can afford to need to factor in that less might be more and eating something that is tasty and worthwhile, is better than a plate heaped with tasteless fast food or ready meals.
- Maybe schools in areas that are known to be ones where parents are struggling to feed their families a healthy diet should have reduced cost fruit and vegetables on sale to parents.
- Connected to the above - breakfast clubs for kids who need them - provide porridge, muesli, yogurts and fruit.
Why not start more after school gardening clubs that teach children how fruit and vegetables are grown and what freshly picked food tastes like.
