The Right to Food - An Interactive Story About Hunger

The Right to Food is an interactive story about the challenges of feeding the world's people. The story, produced by feedingminds.org, takes students to eight locations around the world. At each location students read about how people get food and the challenges that people can face in getting adequate food for themselves and their families.

Applications for Education
The Right to Food isn't the slickest website that you'll see today, but it does contain excellent information for students. As students read each part of the story they are asked to think about a series of "is it fair?" questions. Those questions could be used as the starting place for classroom discussions.

Right to Food is available in six languages; English, Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese, and Arabic.
