Examine your relationship with food by learning about the poultry industry. What do terms like “cage-free”, “organic”, “free-range” and “certified humane” really mean? In this project, we will consider the ethical issues associated with eating meat, visit a local butcher to learn about where they source their meat and how they butcher it, learn to slaughter our own chicken in a “humane” manner, and share the cooked chicken and other food as a group.
