The key ingredients to a hunger free world are affordable, sustainable, and nutritious foods. This challenge is about celebrating the global diversity of food by broadening our understanding of how our global neighbors care for, prepare, and enjoy food.
Upload a resource (as simple as a Word doc and pictures) of your favorite local recipe – then we will compile all the resources into a global so we can create a World Vision Youth Cookbook! The only requirements for recipe submissions are that they incorporate a locally grown food from your region. Your region of the earth is unique; celebrate it by using the food it produces for you!
How can you be a part of a hunger free world through your local actions?
Learn about problems the problems in your community that are related to hunger, nutrition, and food production. Find ways to be a part of the solutions to these problems locally. Then, share your ideas and efforts by creating an action or resource.
Hunger is not just about a lack of food. Even if people eat enough calories, they can be malnourished if that food does not provide adequate nutrients to allow their bodies to function well. We’re going to explore nutrition by starting with what’s on our own plate.
Take a photo of your meal and add it to the platform. There you will be able to explore what nutrition looks like in different cultures and gain a better understanding of your own nutrition.
