Gladstone High offers new social studies class on food
The Culture and History of Food is a new social studies course at Gladstone High School this term. Students will explore food through the lens of social science. Each unit in the class will teach hands-on culinary skills, with an emphasis on safe food preparation. Bob’s Red Mill donated most of the basic food ingredients needed for the class, including flours, oats, and bread mixes.

“Food is something that connects everyone on the planet in some way, and it can help us understand the complex relationships, issues, and events that have shaped our world,” said teacher Ryan Browning.
