4. Computer-based Hunger Activities
U.S. Budget Priorities: An engaging, interactive computer activity for youth and adults. Previous users have said it brings alive the shocking imbalance in U.S. budget priorities: a vast amount goes to military power, and very little to diplomacy and development aid as alternatives for engaging our world. (updated 2014 version).
5. Hunger Education Resources
engaging and accessible
resources for individuals and small groups:
"Taking Root" is a superb five-part congregation education program on hunger (look under the "Hunger Education" tab).
It is available for three different age levels, primary, middle, h.s. each with very different, well conceived activities, visuals, stories, and great graphic look. Several LPF pastors and lay leaders who have used the program in their congregation have raved about its quality, flexibility, and ability to engage young people.
