How’d That Get on My Plate?

A lesson on the impact of food choices

Everybody eats, but how often do we stop to think about how the food on our plates got there and about the impacts of that food on people, animals, and the planet? This activity encourages participants to explore how sample ingredients in our food might affect the environment, people, and animals, and what alternatives might exist that could do more good and less harm.
