I tried to post this in the Activism forum, but somehow it got lost or something...

My son is doing an independant-study project on world hunger. (He gets out of taking Social Studies next school term in exchange for doing this project.)

Does anyone know of a website that gives the breakdown of the object lesson involving several people, some food, and some water? (The resources are distributed in the same percentages as they are globally. Some people have lots of resources, some few, some none at all.) It makes a big impact, and he wants to use it as part of his oral presentation, but for the life of me I can't find it anywhere.

Thanks in advance.

I think this has it: http://www.uen.org/Lessonplan/preview.cgi?LPid=1271 http://www.elca.org/hunger/resources...ity/index.html

And, while it isn't exactly what you are asking for let me mention a wonderful book. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/158...323805?ie=UTF8
Hungry Planet by Peter Menzel. The book features portraits of families from around the world with what they eat in a week. It also has great statistical information about nutrition related health. We had some very good conversations at our house inspired by this book.
