Feed the Hungry

A WebQuest about Hunger for High School Students
by Beth Tobin

The Task

Each year at Thanksgiving St. Peter-Marian sponsors a food drive for families in the Worcester area.  In order that all the students in the school understand the real need, they must come to understand the reality, causes and effects of hunger.  It has become the role of the students in community service to be the teachers in this area.  By the end of this assignment you will:    

Understand the causes and effects of hunger

Become familiar with the agencies that attempt to alleviate hunger both locally and nationally

Evaluate the effectiveness of these agencies

Know and apply the seven themes of Catholic Social Teaching

Plan a program to teach others about hunger


  The Process
