Street Chefs - Homelessness

Street Chefs - Homelessness

A bundle of resources which supported a curriculum/focus days on homelessness. The aim was for students to learn about homelessness and what it might be like to be homeless and then carry out baking/cooking which could be donated to a local homeless shelter. The project would still be very informative and emotive without the cooking as there are lots of activities exploring homelessness.
