Keep your e-learning momentum going with these online resources exploring SDG 2: Zero Hunger, which aims to end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture.
Our friends at Canadian Foodgrains Bank have free learning resources on their websites such as Food From the Field which is an activity that explores staple food plants from around the world, particularly those eaten by people in regions of food insecurity. The resource is a free download designed for ages 9-11 and touches on geography, plant biology, and cooking curricula.
