FFA advisers and teachers–YOUR Students can become part of the solution to world hunger


Our FREE Global Food Security Challenge Curriculum meets school-based SAE requirements and helps your students make a difference in the world.

With this new curriculum, you will help your students examine world hunger and poverty in a meaningful way. The Global Food Security Challenge offers a community-based project that meets new school-based Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) requirements and helps your students make a difference in the world. Developed by Melanie Bloom of the ABN Educational Consulting Group, the curriculum has three flexible modules that give students a greater understanding of the root causes of hunger and poverty in rural areas in the developing world.

Our curriculum and SAE are modeled after a service learning project used by an Ag Educator in a Pennsylvania high school. Growing Hope brought visitors to the school from the overseas programs the students chose to provide ag training support for. It was an amazing experience for the students to hear first-hand what their support meant to the people there and the difference it made in their families’ nutrition, health and well-being.
