The Big Picture
Think of something you have eaten this week that would not have been available to your grandparent's generation. Changes in technology, trade, and wealth have contributed to changes for Scotland in:
- The range of foods available to us.
- The way some of our food is produced.
- The volume of food waste we produce.
- The values we attach to food.
These changes have also brought damage to our environment through pollution and using up non-renewable resources.
The good news is that there's things we can do to make sure what we eat isn't harming the environment.
There's more good news - these things are fun, can help bring us together with people and places we care about and they can involve great food!
