Hunger 101 Curriculum

Hunger 101 Curriculum materials were developed in the early 90s with the help of Emory University’s School of Public Health and recently updated with the help of Georgia State University’s School of Social Work. The materials are full of facts, resources and fabulous activities that you can use to educate your community, office or classroom about hunger and poverty. The entire Hunger 101 Curriculum can be downloaded, or you can choose to download sections of the Curriculum: individual modules, resource pages or activities.

The Community Food Experience
Target Age - Community members of all ages

The Community Food Experience simulates the food security challenges faced by millions in our country and explores both the barriers to access and the impact food insecurity has on community health. This activity can be facilitated with groups of 20-50 people ages 12-adult. If you are local, the ACFB Education and Outreach team can facilitate CFE for your group, or you can download and build your own CFE kit. Contact education@acfb.org to schedule or with any questions. The simulation takes about 1.5 hours. You can also download a copy of the game here.

Girl Scout Hunger 101 Patch Project
Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta, Inc. and the Atlanta Community Food Bank have partnered to develop the Hunger 101 Patch Project for Girl Scout Daisies through Girl Scout Ambassadors. The Hunger 101 Patch Project is a wonderful opportunity for girls to learn about hunger as a contemporary issue.  Scouts will be encouraged to take on activities that engage, educate and empower them to address hunger in their community. Learn more about the Girl Scout Patch Project here.
