The objective of Huddle Against Hunger is to create more empathy and understanding among elementary, middle and high school students about those who experience hunger. Huddle Against Hunger includes a curriculum designed for all ages and provides activities to better understand why there is a need for food assistance, and that youth are especially impacted when they lack enough nutritious food on a regular basis.
Here’s how to get started:
Huddle Against Hunger is a curriculum that teachers can lead at their own pace in their classroom. The average length of time to complete the curriculum with activities is around 6 weeks.
Field trips can be scheduled by emailing HuddleAgainstHunger@houstonfoodbank.org.
It is recommended to book your field trips to the Houston Food Bank as soon as possible to ensure your scheduled date is available.
Field trips take place Monday – Thursday from 8:00 – 12:00 p.m. or 1:00 – 4:00 p.m., or we can adjust for your school’s timing and needs. The trip and volunteer shift consists of:
- A short intro video
- Hands-on experience packing food, sorting donations, preparing bags for our Backpack Buddy program, etc.
- All students will receive a token of appreciation for participating in the Huddle Against Hunger program
- All schools who complete the curriculum and field trip will be eligible to win a visit from the Houston Texans and Houston Food Bank to your school. One school will be selected in the spring to win
- Field trips take approximately 3 – 4 hours
