Dear Division 16,
Thank you for your focus and energy as we start our final Food Project!
We have been thinking and talking a lot about equity related to food and also to thinking about food security, which, in short, means a reliable access to food.
When Erin visited us from the Greater Vancouver Food Bank, she talked about how much food different countries imported. We found this article yesterday that gives good information and some statistics about food security and food importing around the world.
Please read the article below and then answer one of the following questions:
- How do you think countries and citizens are affected by having to import large amounts of food? What impact would that have on a country?
- Do you think that countries who import large amounts of food do so out of need or want? Use examples in your responses.
3.(Challenge) Do you see any issues with the way that this data is reported? Explain your thinking
I look forward to your responses!
