 Here’s a cool program for FFA members to get their chapters and
communities involved in…****

Nearly one in four children (more than 17 million U.S. children) go hungry
at some point throughout the year. *Child Hunger Ends Here* is on a mission
to change that, and they are offering a free innovative project-based
learning activity that engages students grades 7-12 in learning about and
fighting child hunger.****

The program offers a 10-step curriculum guides students through the entire
process and along the way they learn about child hunger and build a cause
marketing plan that engages their entire community to fight the growing
problem. A national contest with great prizes is available for those
chapters who succeed the most.****

The curriculum helps define what child hunger is and leads students through
current national hunger prevention efforts. The class then engages in a
child hunger-fighting initiative by organizing into team to explore cause
marketing and create their cause marketing plan. The campaign has two
goals: to fight child hunger and educate the public on the food insecurity
issue.****

The curriculum pulls together a variety of resources including hunger
statistics from Feeding America and current programs such as Schools Fight
Hunger.****

Enrolled classrooms/groups* receive classroom/group access to USA TODAY’s
electronic edition* for project research. Winning team members and teacher
each receive an* iPad 2* and a winning classroom a celebratory luncheon.
Contest rules apply.****
