Hungry for Change

Brought to you by Round Square


Hungry for Change is a school-based initiative designed to raise money, awareness and understanding for local and world famine and poverty. In order to participate, students are asked to fast for 12 hours (middle school) or 24 hours (senior school), to raise a minimum of $40 in pledges and to upload a picture of ‘What Hunger means to me’. Students will also participate in a mandatory after school activity on January 31st, designed to develop empathy and compassion for others. Upon completion of the 12 or 24 hour fast, handing in pledges, uploading the photo and participating in the after school activity, students will earn 10 hours of service.
