Assignment:

Examine the different organizations below. Take the time to learn about the organization and their work. Go into Google Docs and create a presentation with the Title LastName.HUNGER.Class. Make sure you share the document with me and every member of your group. Each member of your group should construct 3 pages in the presentation. (With permission of the instructor groups could use Glogste, create an imovie, use Comic Life, or some other product)

Create a title page with the name of the organization and each member of the group listed.
This is a visual presentation so slides can only have a title and an image. Very Little writing!
With no written notes you will be presenting this to the class.

No Hungry Kid - an organization that funds big grants; probably out of our reach, but there are also resources for educators

Lead2Feed - this one is much more directed at students. Here's their description of their purpose:
The World Hunger Leadership Challenge was created by the USA TODAY Charitable Foundation and the Lift a Life Foundation, with assistance from the Yum! Foundation, to encourage middle and high school students to hone leadership skills by completing a service-learning project that solves hunger issues.
