The Story of Food

The Story of Food

Why is there so much food for some while more than a billion people in the world today don't have enough to eat? The Story of Food will get you thinking about our broken food system and what's gone wrong!

Each one of us can help rebuild a healthier food system and regain our lost connection with real food and the people who grow it. We can do this with the food choices we make every day. Watch the video now!

Seed Story

Seed Story

Seeds are important. The story of food begins and ends with seeds. In one minute, a group of elementary school kids explain why seeds deserve our attention and protection.

Produced by Kate Settle and participants in USC Canada's Sow and Save program.

Seed Story

Match the seed

Match the seed to the food it grows. This is a great game for kids in the classroom or at home with the family. Happy hunting!
