Often, we form ideas about other people and other cultures based on stereotypes and inaccurate information. Sometimes, we have sparse knowledge or no knowledge of other peoples and this may lead to a fear of the unknown. In this workshop, we will learn about nutrition in other cultures by studying their dietary staples.
For junior high and high school : We integrate other topics (cultures, languages) by working with the history or social studies teacher. We also have an opportunity to discuss how to approach “the other” by playing a game followed by discussion group.
