Event Details

HungerU will be at Concordia University-St. Paul!
September 14, 9 am-4 pm
Let’s Make #HungerExtinct

Hunger is the NUMBER ONE KILLER in the world
(more than HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined!)

Students will have the opportunity to learn more about global hunger and REAL SOLUTIONS
when the HungerU mobile educational exhibit visits the area on their 10 week US tour
at Concordia University-St. Paul.
——-
The spirit of HungerU is rooted in peer-to-peer conversation and sharing!

With every stop on the tour and every individual we meet, our understanding grows about how people think, what they know and how much they care about issues related to food security in the United States and around the world.

Students are encouraged to take the HungerU Challenge, where they are asked 6 questions related to food security and ag. Each HungerUChallenge taken by a student goes towards meals donated to campus partners where they provide meals to their local community. WE LOVE THIS!!! (We engage through mission-aligned partners at EACH CAMPUS within our exhibit called MEET Ups!)

The HungerU experience ALSO encourages students to connect to their policymakers on Capitol Hill. Through the HungerUChallenge.com we’ve made it SUPER EASY for students to send a letter to their local congressman expressing that food security is a critical component for a more secure nation and world.

COME VISIT US!!

“We are excited to launch this year to teach and empower students about how THEIR VOICES MATTER and that food security is WITHIN REACH and is solvable in their lifetimes!” –Lina Walz Salvador, HungerU Manager
