This article describes how the Food   Stories website has been used with year 11 students. As well as motivating them, the site has helped to develop their understanding of cultural   pluralism, integration and assimilation. The article describes how the   students were able to draw on a variety of resources and their own   experiences of food to make links between migration and multicultural   societies.
