Lift A Life Foundation Mobilizes Nearly 200,000 Students Nationwide With Second Annual “Lead2Feed World Hunger Leadership Challenge” In Partnership With USA TODAY Charitable Foundation

Stocks in this article: YUM

Lift a Life Foundation announces five grand prize winners of the second annual “Lead2Feed World Hunger Leadership Challenge” in partnership with USA TODAY Charitable Foundation and Yum! Brands Foundation.

Nearly 200,000 middle and high school students in more than 850 schools and clubs participated in the nationwide challenge that encouraged students to hone their leadership skills through projects focused on solving hunger, locally or globally. Yum! Brands Foundation will provide over $250,000 in prize money grants to 100 student teams for U.S. public charities engaged in hunger relief programs.

The “Lead2Feed World Hunger Leadership Challenge” is a teacher-led educational program that combines a standards-based curriculum on the topic of leadership along with the challenge of solving world hunger through service learning projects conducted by student teams.

Students use principles from Yum! Brands’ Chairman and CEO David Novak’s best-selling book, TAKING PEOPLE WITH YOU: The Only Way to Make BIG Things Happen, the basis for the Lead2Feed curriculum provided by USA TODAY Education. In the book, Novak shares the secrets of the unique “Taking People With You” leadership program he has developed and taught during his 16 years at Yum! Brands. All of his proceeds from the book go to the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) in conjunction with Yum! Brands’ global hunger relief efforts.

“It’s very inspiring how Lead2Feed has encouraged nearly half a million students over the past two years to find creative ways to fight hunger in their local communities and around the globe,” said David Novak, Chairman and CEO, Yum! Brands, Inc. “It is exciting to watch Lead2Feed develop the next generation of leaders who are passionate about solving hunger. I truly believe that by teaching people how to lead the right way, we can make the world a better place together.”

“We were excited to see so many teachers from different disciplines such as agriculture, health, marketing, science, math and social studies participate in this year’s program, as well as Boys and Girls Clubs and JROTC groups,” said Diane Barrett, President, USA TODAY Charitable Foundation. “The free leadership program can fulfill class service project requirements that many school districts require for high school graduation or as part of the middle school curriculum while helping a 501c3 in their community,” said Barrett.
