Twenty eight years ago, OPIRG Peterborough produced an educational manual, The Supermarket Tour, that described a range of food issues including labour practices: labeling; marketing; genetic manipulation; pesticides; and corporate profits, among others. The information presented in The Supermarket Tour manual is arranged in more or less the same order you would move through the store on a tour.
The Supermarket Tour manual provides facilitation and popular education resources for turning the food issues information into a workshop. Using the supermarket as a classroom, the tour asks questions about the products on supermarkets shelves, providing a focus for discussion on a wide range of food issues.
Get your copy today for only $10 from the OPIRG Peterborough office (Room 102 at Saldier House) or the Seasoned Spoon (Champlain College at Trent).
