BE PART OF THE SOLUTION TO PREVENT HUNGER
EXPLORE.ACT.TELL IS A FREE EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING PROGRAM THAT TEACHES STUDENTS TO UNDERSTAND AND ACT ON SOLUTIONS TO HUNGER INSECURITY IN THEIR COMMUNITY.
If you serve students who are in 6-12th grades, this program is for you!
Take your students on a journey to be a part of the solution to prevent hunger in your community!
Explore.Act.Tell. is fully funded by our generous donor, Albertsons Companies Foundation Nourishing Neighbors Program. The Explore.Act.Tell. lessons and project work well in any class/subject area, after school club, homeschool, or community youth group. Lessons will teach young people, through a series of activities, about the issues surrounding hunger and food insecurity and develop skills they will use to create and implement a community service project.
Using a project based learning strategy, students will:
- EXPLORE a topic
- Design ways to ACT on solutions by implementing a project and competing for grant funds to share with deserving organizations
- TELL Your Story: Using a recap of the project and results, along with photos and an optional video, students share their story so others can join the action to fight hunger.
As we work to teach youth to become engaged citizens, students will become aware of food insecurity issues in their neighborhood, take action and advocate for community involvement and service.
Special Breakfast Focus for schools in Acme Markets communities: If you choose, students can focus their project work on Breakfast, finding ways to improve access to breakfast food and meals. If you choose to focus on Breakfast, there are special resources available for your team. Find out more in the Breakfast Special Focus document on the Resources page.
