Unit Overview 

In this lesson, students explore the issue of food insecurity in their community. Using the table as a theme, students design and carry out a service-learning project that addresses the issue of child hunger in the United States. They bring their time, talent, and treasure to the table.

Service Experience 
The students design and carry out a service project called, "What Will You Bring to the Table?" The project involves taking action to address the issue of child hunger in their community through a food drive or awareness campaign. Part of the project involves designing or building a table to help children who are hungry. They may use a real table, a mural of a table, or a tablecloth set up in the lunchroom. They may be creative about their table and where it is displayed. The table may be a collection site for donations or a display that teaches others about the needs of children who are hungry. The table can also be a gathering place for conversations about hunger and what they can do to address the issue.
