Educating Your Students About World Hunger

Several years ago World Vision began a movement to help raise funds to purchase food and to help feed the hungry around the world. For many years, it’s been known as the 30 Hour Famine. This event is an opportunity for your students to fast for 30 hours, and yes, they can survive! In addition to fasting, they raise money to be sent to World Vision and have opportunities during the event to learn about world hunger and serving others. Below are some tips that we’ve learned over the years.

Visit www.30hourfamine.org to find an incredible website full of helps and up to date information! You can also sign up for your Famine weekend here. Most Famines happen from mid-February to late April so there is still plenty of time to plan yours and get it rolling.

30 Hour Famine is a great time to educate kids about other areas of the world and the reality of hunger while growing closer as a group.

CYMT’s new partnership with CSM, City Service Mission, opens doors to impact more students across the country, and this is only the beginning. Continuing to believe that we are better together, CYMT has partnered with CSM to bring a “Collide-like” experience to cities across the nation. This partnership allows CYMT to live into our gifts of developing a theologically rich curriculum that enables students to reflect using the WOW Theological Method, ultimately creating a mission trip experience that is much more than a week of community service.
