We are so excited to have the Atlanta Community Food Bank come to Springdale Park to lead their Hunger 101 program with our Kindergarten – 3rd grade kids.
Hunger 101 is an education project of the Atlanta Community Food Bank that strives to increase awareness about hunger and poverty on a local, state, and national level.
Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade students read the book “Nico” by Paul Borovsky to begin their discussion. In addition to being a great story about sharing and caring for your friends, it also helps illuminate how a Food Bank works.
3rd grade students will participate in a food access shopping activity. Small groups will make a menu for the day by shopping at the corner store or the grocery store. Then we’ll give them the challenge of working within their food stamp budget for the day (about $3.00) and they will have to redo their menu. Students will report back on the difficult decisions they made working within these confines.
