Nourish

June 15, 2011  • 

Nourish is an educational initiative designed to open a meaningful conversation about food and sustainability, particularly in schools and communities. To inform and inspire the largest number of people, Nourish combines PBS television, curriculum resources, website tools and information, short films and teacher and youth seminars. With a distinctly positive vision, Nourish celebrates both food and community.

For example, Nourish enables middle school teachers to teach about food and sustainability by providing a free Middle School Curriculum Guide, available for download, which can be used in social studies, science, health or English classes. Activity themes include The Story of Food; Seasonal, Local Food; Food Traditions; Food and Ecosystems; Analyzing Food Ads; and School Lunch Survey.

In addition, the website also dedicates an entire section to Action, where parents, educators and kids can learn how to take action in their schools, homes and communities!
