Food for Good

Food For Good is GOAL’s newest resource with lessons for all primary school classes. The lessons look at how food connects us to people all around the world and how food systems are connected to global justice issues including poverty, gender equality, decent work and biodiversity.

  • Infant lessons look at the journey of a banana.
  • 1st/2nd class children get a chance to learn about Uganda and how life, farming and food there compares to Ireland.
  • 3rd/4th class children will look at where in the world the food they eat for lunch comes from.
  • 5th and 6th will explore in depth how our food systems can help to make the world a better place.
