UW-Madison professors are invited to take classroom groups to visit the HungerU mobile educational classroom when it stops on the UW-Madison campus next week. The goal of the touring exhibit, which has already stopped at over 45 universities across the country over the past two years, is to build awareness of global hunger issues and the critical role modern agriculture plays in putting food on people’s tables.
The HungerU trailer, which expands into a 40×40-foot classroom space, features interactive displays, games and other educational materials designed and staffed by HungerU crew members. It will be stationed in front of the Chazen Museum on East Campus Mall on Nov. 6 and 7 and will be open from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. on both days.
Instructors who plan to bring their students to the exhibit are encouraged to make advanced arrangements by contacting Malorie Cardon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The HungerU Tour is a special project of Farmers Feeding the World and the Farm Journal Foundation. UW-Madison is one of 17 tour stops the project will make throughout the Midwest and the Pacific Northwest this fall. The visit was arranged by CALS and two student organizations: the Collegiate Farm Bureau at UW-Madison and Collegiate FFA.
