lesson series: food & sustainability

We have created this series of lessons with the support of Eat.Drink.Think.Kids., a special content division of Edible Communities created for children, teachers, and families. Edible Communities is the world’s largest media company devoted to healthy, sustainable foods, which publishes 85+ magazines and websites across North America. 


We would also like to thank Subject to Climate, who helped co-create, review, and evaluate these lesson plans and resources.
