FoodSpan Unit III: Consumers and Communities, Part III
University of Nevada Cooperative Extension is an outreach arm of the University that extends unbiased, research-based knowledge to local communities. Educational programs and projects are developed based on local needs in partnership with other agencies and volunteers.
The concluding part of unit III continues the examination of how the food system affects consumers and communities. Once food is produced, factors such as marketing, labeling, socioeconomic status, and government policy influence what food people are able to eat and how it impacts their health. Topics covered in this final session, part III include: (15) Food Policy in Action and the Food Citizen Action Project presentations.
FoodSpan is a curriculum suitable for adults that highlights critical issues in the food system and empowers students to be food citizens. This curriculum stimulates debate about crucial food system topics related to human health, the environment, equity, and animal welfare. The Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future developed FoodSpan as a natural outgrowth of the work it does to help build a healthier, more equitable, and more resilient food system.
