Food security in the UK - Food banks

This is a lesson taken from Topic 8: Resource Reliance of the GCSE geography OCR B specification. The lesson objective is about evaluating the use of food banks to help achieve food security in the UK.

The lesson contains a fact finding activity where students in groups are given 3 attempts to match the statements to the correct numbers. This is a great activity to introduce the issue.

The lesson also has an activity where students have to try and suggest 10 items of food that they would expect to find in a 3 day food package provided by food banks.

The lesson goes on to look at the Trussell Trust and focuses on the West End food bank in Newcastle. The lesson contains some detailed modelling of how to attempt the more challenging extended questions based on higher order thinking skills.
