If you can’t attend the Little Food Festival in person we’ve prepared an online taste right here for you, complete with a competition for you to win a few little items! Perfect to keep the kids occupied during school holidays, or a rainy weekend!

The Little Food Festival is brought to you by the Sandro Demaio Foundation, Monash University,  and Fed Square with major partners the Gandel Foundation and The City of Melbourne.

Now it’s time to get into all of the different activities we have cooked up for you around the food system. What is the food system you ask? Well, hit play on the video below to find out. Then check out our activity menu below and dive in.

Food Miles

Transporting and Processing

How far does our food travel to be on our plate, or in our bellies? To begin to answer this question, watch this video and then download the activity booklet. Spend time working your way through the activities to find out how far your favourite meal has travelled to get to you.

Once you have done that, check out the competition page and send us your picture of your favourite meal, tell us how many miles it travelled and share one idea for reducing your meal’s food miles.
