Global Learning Programme

Activities and Resources

Resource to celebrate World Food Day 2017 (16 October)

World Food Day is an annual event promoted by the UN to raise awareness of food and food security. It is part of the world’s campaign to take action against hunger and reach Global Goal (SDG) 2 for Zero Hunger by 2030. This year’s theme is changing the future of migration by investing in food security and rural migration.

To help schools engage with World Food Day, the Global Learning Programme is providing this free resource to support schools that want to investigate food and food security, and develop pupils’ thinking about key global development ideas – particularly interdependence and sustainability. The resource features three ready-to-teach activities, together with extensive links to a range of other food resources and activities for all Key Stages.

Log in to your school's GLP account to access this and many other free teaching resources. If your school isn't one of the thousands of schools in England already registered for the GLP and benefiting from the funding for CPD,* curriculum guidance and resources available, simply register your school today for free!
