5th Grade Food Sustainability Curriculum 

This seven-week seven-lesson curriculum will complement KIN’s current nutrition curriculum and delve deeper into food sustainability issues. Our plan is to introduce this curriculum into classrooms in underserved communities in KIN’s existing and future chapters, with the eventual goal of incorporating food sustainability and planetary health into the US health education framework.

 

The lessons will cover a variety of relevant sustainable diet topics with a primary focus placed on the environment and animals in the food system, as outlined below:
 

  • Environment in the food system.

  • Communities in the food system.

  • Consumers and workers in the food system.

  • Animals in the food system.

  • The individual and the food system.

Kids in Nutrition developed an experimental pilot lesson in January 2018, focusing on sustainable diets with endorsement from the Harvard Kennedy School and guidance from the Harvard Planetary Health Alliance (PHA). The lesson was implemented in May 2018 at the Goleta Boys and Girls Club.
