About

The Food Literacy International Partnership (FLIP) is a global collaboration to support educators and researchers in their work, understanding the world through food.

Our shared work around food literacy education connects to a range of global issues including:

  • social inequity that causes both hunger and overconsumption;
  • loss of biodiversity and
  • impacts on the well-being of citizens.

Our aim is to develop people’s capacity to act in ways that support sustainable consumption and equitable access to food.

Our vision is to create opportunities for learning about food that enables socially just and sustainable futures.

We are non-profit partnership that aims to develop food literacy education across the lifespan through conversations, collaborations and cooperative endeavours.

This food literacy partnership welcomes the sharing of knowledge and experiences around food literacy. Our work connects a diverse range of researchers, practitioners and organisations as they share current research and educational initiatives.

We recognise that food is utilised in many ways – to nourish and sustain individual bodies and to nurture and express familial and cultural attributes. Food links human and natural ecosystems and therefore contributes to the terraforming of landscapes globally.

Food literacy education enables people to think about food in different ways. It invites us to consider what can or should be eaten and how food connects to family and culture. As an essential human and community resource we need to pay attention to equitable access to food and that is produced in ecologically responsible ways.

The objectives of this project are to:

(1) Carry out research that engages with food literacy education that includes curriculum and pedagogical approaches within formal contexts – early childhood-12;

(2) Engage in practices that promote social justice, food sovereignty and sustainable food supply; and

(3) Support educators to provide inclusive and engaging educational experiences that develop food literacy.

The Growing a Transnational Food Literacy Education Partnership is supported in part by funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council.
