What is Hunger 101?

Hunger 101 is a one-time, role-playing activity and discussion that increases awareness and understanding of hunger and poverty and their many causes in our community.  The  hour-long program allows individuals to take on the identity and circumstances of a real person faced with food insecurity in our region.  Participants must then try to make ends meet while also securing food for their families.  It is a great compliment to volunteering or a food drive.

Please bring a donation if you can!
