We Scare Hunger: Halloween for hunger campaign

Trick-or-treating for non-perishable food items

"We Scare Hunger", formerly Halloween for Hunger, is "Free The Children's annual campaign to mobilize youth around local hunger issues.   By trick-or-treating for non-perishable food items instead of just candy, or collecting canned goods at school and in their community, young people help support their local food bank and raise awareness about the hunger issue.

Check out the website for a promotional video, and other ready-to-use resources (e.g. posters, notice cards and lesson plans)  Additional lesson plans on the local hunger issue are available on the website.  Here are links to elementary lesson plan and secondary lesson plan.
