Food for Thought


Where does our food come from? How is the climate changing what's on our plates? And, with a global population set to hit 9 billion by 2050, how will we make sure everyone has enough to eat?

Linked to Oxfam's GROW campaign, the Food for Thought school resources are a set of downloadable resource to get young people learning, thinking and taking action for a fairer food system.
