Can you believe that in 2015, 1 in 9 people still go hungry? Any time in Term 4, your students can hold a lunchtime Hunger Banquet at your school, to get a first-hand taste of the inequalities in the world’s food system and learn what’s causing global hunger. Do it with your class, year level or even whole school. Explores issues around food security, why global hunger still exists and what young Australians can do to help make sure everyone has enough to eat. Mapped to Australian Curriculum Geography for Years 6, 9 and 10, it’s also a great opportunity for cross-curricula engagement.
When you register you’ll be sent a ‘How To Guide for Students’ to help them plan, organise and run the event themselves, with tips and ideas, posters, stories from the field, teaching materials and other goodies.
Students receive a character ticket which divides them into groups representing High-, Middle- and Low- income regions of the globe. They then receive meals similar to those that people in these regions might get – but no matter the meal, it’s sure to be a lunch experience they will never forget!
