#foodcrisis is a graphic novel that weaves together gripping story-lines about land grabs, rising food prices, inequality, climate change & more. It starts with a massive drought hitting North America and describes how society may react. #foodcrisis isn’t just a work of fiction though. All the elements of the plot are based on the history of past food crises, like the Dust Bowl or the Great Irish Potato Famine, just imagined in our future.
Along with its 13 background essays and almost 200 footnotes, #foodcrisiscomes with a 6-week Unit Plan based on the Ontario curriculum to help students and the interested public learn about this important topic.
The Unit Plan was developed for “Canada and World Studies” and “Social Sciences and Humanities,” based on the Ontario curriculum and is currently being implemented in classrooms across the country.
