Young people can inspire change and end hunger close to home. We educate and engage youth leaders through a range of programs. Cook County teachers, students and youth group leaders are encouraged to learn more.
Do you want to host a youth event at the Food Depository or elsewhere in Cook County? Learn more here and contact us for more information.
Programs for Youth
Education and Volunteerism for Ages 5-13
Our Nourish 101 curriculum includes classroom lessons and interactive activities. Lessons are adapted for elementary and middle school age groups. Each child will leave with information on the Food Depository’s programs, locations of our agency partners and what steps they can take to advance our mission.
