NWEI’s self-led discussion courses are designed to spark shared learning, shared stories, and shared action. Each course book also includes tips and guidelines to help facilitators organize a course.
A detailed list of articles and resources included in the Hungry For Change course book are available in the Table of Contents.
Participants read each week’s material (which may include brief articles, book excerpts and/or links to online content) on their own. During each session, group members take turns facilitating by leading others through discussion questions provided in the course book.

“I will never be able to shop the same way as before. The content and discussion were great in the way they layered the information and led us deeper into the issues surrounding food. Many of us in the class have made some very significant changes in our food choices.”
