Why should I teach Lead2Feed
in my classroom?

The Path to Leadership

Lead2Feed will bring about an amazing transformation in your students. Lead2Feed is a 10-lesson program that is packaged and ready to be implemented in your classroom.

Designed by a “leader on leadership” – Yum! Brands Executive Chairman David Novak – the Lead2Feed program guides students down the path to becoming strong, service-minded leaders. It’s a proven process from a proven leader, and it can make a difference in your classroom, your community… and the world.

Set Goals. Achieve More.

What sets Lead2Feed apart from other leadership programs is its focus on service learning. By challenging students to move toward a solution to local and global hunger, they are motivated to step up and step out as leaders.

Participating groups choose a 501(c)(3) organization that addresses hunger issues, and assists them as part of the program. Simultaneously, students are learning to set goals, be their best selves, and most of all, to make BIG things happen.

Align With the Core

The Lead2Feed program is built on Common Core State Standards, with 10 service learning-based, turnkey lessons that are totally FREE for you to implement.

You’ll also receive plenty of support materials, including a copy of David Novak’s best-selling book, Taking People With You, lesson guidelines, printable downloads and more.

Lead2Feed’s partnership with the USA TODAY allows classrooms access to unparalleled educational resources, including the electronic edition of the newspaper.


Grow Tomorrow’s Leaders, Today

Provided with the Lead2Feed curriculum are a series of videos featuring David Novak himself. Mr. Novak shares personal, relatable stories that make a connection with students of all backgrounds. Teachers report seeing a great change in many students, as wallflowers blossomed into leaders, and those who never spoke up suddenly began to speak out.

Get Motivated to Inspire

Students aren’t the only ones learning with the Lead2Feed program. Teachers, the quintessential classroom leaders, also benefit from David Novak’s wisdom on leadership. He’s provided a series of webinars and videos designed to help prepare you to implement the program effectively and easily.

Challenge Them to Change the World

Motivate students to lead and serve with the Lead2Feed program. Part of the challenge is documenting students’ efforts to solve local and global hunger via photographs or video. The project is submitted to Lead2Feed officials, with prize money then being award to the selected non-profits of the winning schools.
