Food Aid

This unit requires students to understand what it means to be food insecure, and to evaluate the possible reasons for being food insecure. Students investigate and evaluate different Australian community programs which provide food and nutrition to the homeless, disadvantaged and/or underprivileged communities. Students explore one program in detail including why it exists, whom it targets and what, if any, specifications or guidelines exist for the type of food to provide. Following this research, students design two recipes and cook one which could be used by their selected program.
