Links to doorways – Food
and Drink

An unhealthy diet contributes to obesity and poor pupil
concentration. Healthy, ethically sourced food can
reverse these effects while protecting the environment
and supporting local producers and suppliers.


By 2020 we would like... ...all schools to be models of
healthy, local and sustainable food and drink produced
or prepared on site (where possible), with strong
commitments to the environment, social responsibility
and animal welfare, and with increased opportunity to
involve local suppliers.

  Additional Doorway Links
• Travel and traffic - Are models of sustainable travel,
  where vehicles are used only when absolutely
  necessary - links to food miles.

• Global dimension - Are models of global citizenship,
  enriching their educational mission with activities
  that improve the lives of people living in other parts of
  the world.

• Purchasing and waste - Are models of waste
  minimisation and sustainable procurement, using goods
  and services of high environmental and ethical
  standards from local sources where practicable, and
  increasing value for money by reducing, reusing,
  repairing and recycling as much as possible.

  Global Food Trail -
  Project Aims
• The project uses the subject of where our food comes
  from to generate an understanding of our global
  interdependence in a simple way that young people can
  relate to.

• The subject of trade helps them to start to understand
  why so many people are unnecessarily poor.

• The project uses the subject of Fair Trade and involves
  activities including: cooking and tasting of Fair Trade
  food.

• Fair Trade is an international effort that children can
  understand and contribute directly to. Thus the activities
  empower the children by enabling them to understand
