The Maryland Hunger Gap
Students will consider how to define hunger and food insecurity, explore interventions designed to improve food security, and take a stand on the merits of expanding universal school breakfast programs. This lesson provides important context and background for participation in Hear the Maryland Crunch! – an event to help raise awareness of the role school breakfast plays in helping improve access to healthy food.
This lesson was created through a partnership between the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future and Maryland Hunger Solutions. Content was adapted from FoodSpan, a free, downloadable curriculum for high school educators spanning critical food system issues from farmto fork.
