Global Hunger

Learn how food waste and loss contribute to global hunger while exploring the meaningful food rituals in local and global communities

Youth investigate their community’s relationship to global hunger by exploring how it produces, consumes, and wastes food. This course brings to life everyday food items, engages youth in exploring local food rituals, applies root cause analysis to this global issue, and inspires youth to make small changes in their local communities to reduce food waste. Learn the interconnected nature of the meals and the responsibility to help eliminate food waste and food loss.

Global Nomads Group leverages the power of storytelling to promote empathy and bring social issues to life through day-to-day realities. Read real, impactful, stories from youth participants around the world that reveal deep truths about global issues. Then youth can enhance the conversation by sharing their own stories with fellow Student to World users and participate in moderated live conversations.
