Flexible, Interdisciplinary Modules

Developed in 2017 by Melanie Bloom with the ABN Educational Consulting Group, our Global Food Security Challenge Curriculum contains three flexible modules that not only increase students' understanding of world hunger and the issues that drive it, but also gives them an opportunity to take an active role in becoming part of the solution.

Module 1: Examine Poverty and Hunger
Fosters understanding of the reality and implications of global hunger by exploring poverty and how it impacts all aspects of life and society.

Module 2: Compare Assistrance and Sustainability
Evaluates food assistance programs and what it takes to build sustainable solutions to poverty and hunger.

Module 3: Investigate and Activate
Engages students in becoming part of the solution by researching, creating and leading projects that support sustainable food security with the potential for world-wide impact!
