HUNGER EDUCATION PROGRAM
The Food Bank of the Southern Tier’s commitment to Hunger Education stems from our firm belief that engaging youth in the fight against hunger is central to ending hunger and poverty in our community. This exciting and growing program works with youth of all ages across the Southern Tier to increase their understanding of hunger and poverty.
The Hunger Education program consists of two main initiatives: Hunger 101 and Hunger Scholars Program, and we also offer Mobilizing Faith Communities workshop materials. Each element offers students the opportunity to engage with the Food Bank of the Southern Tier in a different way.
Hunger 101 is an interactive, age-appropriate workshop that works with youth to explore the realities of hunger and poverty in our community.
The Hunger Scholars Program is a multi-lesson curricula series that works with youth from pre-k through high school and covers a variety of topics regarding who is hungry, the drivers of poverty, food systems, nutrition, effects of hunger, and many more.
Mobilizing Faith Communities resources include access to the Just Neighbors curriculum.
The goals of the Hunger Education Program are:
