Product Description

How to Take Action ( Free Spirit Service Learning for Kids )

A Kids’ Guide to Hunger & Homelessness teaches about issues and solutions related to hunger and homelessness, such as:

  • the definitions of hunger, homelessness, and poverty
  • its causes and effects
  • populations that are often affected
  • responses to hunger and homelessness throughout history
  • food and clothing banks
  • giveaway gardening
  • building projects
  • emergency survival kits

Kids explore what others in the world (including young people) have done and are doing to address the issues, find out what their community needs, and develop a service project. The workbook includes facts, quotations, real-life examples, write-on pages, resources, a note to adults—and a lot of inspiration to get out there and make a difference in the world. Includes exclusive interviews with author and activist Francis Moor Lappé, and Lindsey Lee Johnson, author of Soul Moon Soup, the story of a girl living on the streets with her mother.

The goal of each book is to help kids develop their skills, knowledge, and abilities while having a successful service-learning experience. Created for use with The Complete Guide to Service Learning, each may also be used independently in a classroom or youth-serving organization.
