OVERVIEW:

This paper will show your understanding of global nutrition advocacy and your interest for causes and movements.  Further, this assignment will also demonstrate your creativity, your ability to envision, and your passion towards your fellow man.  In this assignment, you are to complete two parts:

  1. Choose a nutritional-based advocacy organization that resides OUTSIDE of the United States and provide a generalized overview of their organization.  You will need to investigate and report on what they do, their cause, and their current progress.
  2. Come up with a tangible idea for a similar organization for the Lewis University community, the Chicagoland community, your hometown community, or any community within the United States.  You will want to discuss the cause you are trying to help, the means in how you plan to implement social change, and how nutrition is involved.  If you can connect sports into your cause or action, by all means do it.
