Hunger is Not a Game Leader’s Guide

Most young people know about The Hunger Games. They’ve read the books, seen the movies and may have even taken online quizzes to find out which character they are. This intergenerational resource encourages people to watch The Hunger Games together and reflect on the messages that the movie contains about food. The resource is divided into six sessions. In each session you will watch a scene from the movie, have a discussion, participate in an activity, and learn about PWRDF and the work partners are doing around food.
