Have Food, Will Travel (3 of 3)

Unit 5: Food (biosphere and geosphere)
Lesson 3 of 24

Objective: Students will be able to: 1) calculate the environmental impact of a favorite meal; and 2) develop nuanced arguments for and against transported food based on the complex, often contradictory literature.

Big Idea: The food consumed during a typical New York City dinner may have traveled over 10,000 cumulative miles. How might we use our understanding of the costs and benefits of global food distribution to identify aspects of the food system to redesign?
