Rethink Food: Eat to Save the Planet

Rethink Food is a not for profit organisation. Our mission is to educate and empower people to live food secure lives by changing the way we think about food. We work to help people develop a positive relationship with food by focusing on saving the planet, rather than focusing on individual needs, or as we like to call it, “stealth health”.

Schools from across Renfrewshire have teamed up with Rethink Food to learn about the effects our food system has on the environment. Using the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals as a framework, pupils worked to find positive solutions in support of a more sustainable future. As part of this programme, all schools received their own soil free growing system to grow food in their classroom. As their awareness of global issues grew, so did their food, serious classroom cultivation! The programme showcased here has been funded through sponsorship from the following business partners: Savills, Arla, Alliance and HX Parking.
