Vital vegetables: World Food Day
Theme: World Food Day (16 October 2011)
Country: Guatemala
Two young girls, Evelin and Isabel, from Guatemala eat together

What does it mean to be malnourished? This World Food Day (16 October 2011), find out why many children around the world do not have enough food to eat and how their communities are being supported to find more sustainable ways of growing food.

Meet Isabel and Evelin who live in Guatemala, where nearly half of all children under five do not get enough food to eat. Help your class understand what it means to be malnourished; the causes and consequences of a lack of food; and how people are being supported to find sustainable solutions.

This resource features an assembly presentation and plan, including a prayer and activities.
