One in five children in the United States lives in a food-insecure household, which means these children are hungry and struggling to thrive. While federal food programs work to diminish the hunger epidemic, the efforts of local communities to ensure that all citizens receive bountiful and nutritious food are paramount. Hungry Right Here? provides students with a comprehensive explanation of the causes and effects of the hunger epidemic. The author also provides concrete and inspirational examples of how students throughout the country are taking action to help meet the food needs of their local communities. The book can also be used to teach students how to determine an author's purpose and to summarize. The book and lesson are also available for levels V and Z1.
