Curricular materials on food environment

 

From the JHU Center for a Livable Future.  Introductory level background info for a class.

"Lesson Summary

Students will examine how the environments in homes, schools, restaurants, stores and communities can affect what they eat. They will use tools such as maps and surveys to measure the cost, availability and accessibility of food in communities. Food maps of Baltimore City are included for in-class activities. Key concepts include food deserts and grocery gaps."
