12 Food for Sustainable Living


Our community - How far does your food travel?

Not everyone in New Zealand can afford to eat regular, healthy food. This course discusses ideas and attitudes linked to food security and how this relates to the provision of food for New Zealand families.

Course Components

  • Develop understandings about sourcing and using locally produced seasonal foods
  • Investigate people’s attitudes to food and how these influence wellbeing
  • There will be a balance of practical food experiences and collaborative and individual research tasks.

This course is split into two semesters: students can take just one course or both
