Why Go?

To learn about hunger and better understand how it affects our country and what is being done/can be done on a national & local level about it. Students should leave this trip with the knowledge about social justice issues and ways to address hunger poverty. This trip will empower students by educating them about social justice issues involving food insecurity and hunger in America. It will be an opportunity to expose students to what needs to happen to see systems change and to serve who Jesus called "the least of these."
