Last Hunger Season

This week we share with you a film series titled "The Last Hunger Season." This series is being provided by The Chicago Council on Global Affairs. Currently four short videos (ranging from a two minute video to a seven minute video) have been posted to their YouTube channel. They will continue to post videos, each week, telling the story of four African farmers and the everyday challenges they face to feed themselves and others. The videos will continue to be posted until the series is complete on October 16th, which is World Food Day 2014.

I encourage agricultural educators to show the various clips throughout the next weeks leading up to World Food Day and discuss the videos as a class. Challenge students to discuss things from the video that surprised them or they found unique.
