Hunger 101

Who experiences hunger in our community?

Hunger is a condition in which people do not get enough food for fully productive, active lives.   Hunger, food insecurity, and poverty are inextricably linked. Many families have to make the difficult choice to buy healthy food or pay for housing or medicine.

An educational project of the Gallatin Valley Food Bank, Hunger 101, is a flexible curriculum of multi-session programs, stand-alone interactive sessions, and diverse small group activities that explore the issues of hunger and poverty in Gallatin County, the US, and the World. Click here to download a copy of the curriculum

Hunger 101 is designed to share information, activities and ideas with children and teens as well as adults.

  • The curriculum increases awareness of food insecurity, hunger, and poverty while addressing the causes and consequences of these serious problems.
  • The program encourages participants to form their own opinions on the issues surrounding food insecurity, hunger, and poverty and explore possible solutions.

Hunger 101 also includes a workshop for your school or organization.   Please contact us to request a Hunger 101 workshop.
