This high quality PBL unit – designed for English, math, and science – invites students and teachers to explore solutions for hunger and malnutrition around the world. For every piece of artwork submitted from the project, the Bezos Family Foundation will donate $3 (up to $700,000) to youth-focused nutrition programs.

Here's a preview of the student path for this project...


Join the 2020 Hunger Challenge, and make an impact.

This Project Based Learning unit is a collaboration with Students Rebuild, a program of the Bezos Family Foundation, for the 2020 Hunger Challenge. This year-long challenge invites students and educators to join in learning about and responding to hunger and malnutrition.

Students participating in the challenge learn about hunger in all its guises—malnutrition, food insecurity, “food deserts,” and more. They investigate how hunger interferes with education and development to prevent too many young people from living full, healthy lives—and create a work of art to showcase their results.

The Challenge kicks off September 17, 2019, and ends on June 5, 2020, and participation can happen at anytime in that period.
