Workshop: Face Hunger Simulation

(Cancelled) was Saturday, September 12th, 2020 from 4:00pm to 6:00pm (ET)
This event has been cancelled.


Many of us have participated in or been on service trips that seek to improve a community that is outside of our own. We bring resources, knowledge, and experiences that are distinct to those in the community of service. The question is, is this kind of service productive? Does it allow communities to construct their own sustainable solutions to problems that they have the capacity to solve on their own? Or does it provide a flimsy infrastructure that collapses after the service trip ends? This workshop will explore the important distinctions between volunteerism and voluntourism and how to ensure that the service you partake in does minimal harm and leaves a positive lasting impact.
What’s it like to walk in the shoes of someone experiencing hunger? Our Face Hunger™ Workshop offers a glimpse into the daily realities and impossible choices of someone confronting food insecurity during COVID-19. During this interactive simulation, you’ll assume a new identity and work to overcome obstacles to providing food for you and your family. Moving and eye-opening, this session is a good choice for anyone looking to gain a deeper understanding of hunger in the United States, and in our region, specifically.
