'World Food Day' - OCT 16



Collective action across 150 countries is what makes 'World Food Day' one of the most celebrated days of the UN calendar. Hundreds of events and outreach activities bring together governments, businesses, NGOs, the media, and general public. They promote worldwide awareness and action for those who suffer from hunger and for the need to ensure healthy diets for all.




This week's CST activities page has a theme of 'Food & Drink', as it is 'World Food Day' on 16th October.

SINGALONG SONGS




'My Favourite Things', The Sound Of Music - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2G6dd7ikrXs


Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens Brown paper packages tied up with strings These are a few of my favorite things.


Cream-colored ponies and crisp apple strudels; Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles; Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings; These are a few of my favorite things.


Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes Silver-white winters that melt into springs These are a few of my favorite things


When the dog bites, When the bee stings, When I'm feeling sad, I simply remember my favorite things, And then I don't feel so bad.

PRACTICAL ACIVITY



You could make a straightforward food collage, cutting favourite food pictures out of magazines and making them into a pattern.


OR You could try this.


Print off pictures of 'National Foods' and/or 'Regional Foods' and ask members to associate them with a country or area. Ideally, have large maps (global and UK) to refer to.
