Food Anthropology Course: Food and Economics
May 2 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm EDT
UPDATE: Our Food Anthropology Course for Kids is now FREE!
Our 10-week curriculum was inspired by a college course taken by one of our volunteers, but has been restructured and improved for a younger audience.
Food Anthropology is a broad discipline that seeks to better understand the human species in terms of culture, behavior, and biology through food. We hope to get your children thinking about the many ways food influences our lives, including food traditions around the world, ethical and nutritious eating habits, as well as the relationship between food and gender, economics, and power.
Age Group: 6+ with adult supervision

Food And Economics: What is a Banana Republic? No, we are not talking about the clothes store. Students will explore how food influences the economy of cities, countries, and entire nations.
