This Food Insecurity lesson plan also includes:
Food insecurity, whether as a result of food scarcity or a lack of nutritious food, is a growing and serious problem in the world today. After discussing the concept of food insecurity, learners listen to an NPR radio broadcast on the implications of global volatile food prices.

Finally, class members have the opportunity to re-evaluate and adjust their initial conceptions of food insecurity.
