Local food: myth or reality

In this three-part critical challenge, students first develop a definition of the concept of local food and debate the merits of the local food movement. Students then consider the influence and impact of global connections on food supply as they revise a recipe to meet the criteria of what constitutes "local food." Finally, students develop an action plan to enhance their family's local food choices.
