What did Granny eat? What type of food was available when your grandparents were younger? This activity takes approximately 30 minutes of homework time and 30 60 minutes of class time. It encourages students to question whether being able to buy prepared, convenience foods is healthy and whether being able to buy any food at any time of the year is sustainable.
