This is the second in the What We Eat series of lesson plans. In this lesson, learners will watch a short video about Zapatista farming practices and examine why Zapatistas value their traditional food and how they grow it.

Learners are also encouraged to explore the origins of some foodstuffs of the Zapatistas, which do not originate in Chiapas.
