Hunger 101

Cultivating the Next Generation of Volunteers

Hunger 101 consists of on-site presentations to help educate students about the realities of food insecurity.

Hunger 101 Class

Groups are taught hunger facts, local statistics & issues, and how Long Island Cares is addressing food insecurity. Each activity engages participants by exposing the realities of hunger issues and creates opportunities to respond actively and appropriately in our communities.


Our Hunger 101 workshops:

  • Are highly interactive. Appropriate for groups of approximately 15 people or more, ages 12 and older, but can be tailored in length and scope to meet the needs of specific groups.
  • Use the power of role-play. Each participant receives a profile packet with information about the identity, income, and available resources of a Long Islander at risk of hunger.
  • Addresses the complex issues that contribute to the problem of hunger in our community and nationwide.

Want to bring the Hunger 101 workshop to your community group, school, or organization? Please call Christine Brown at 631-582-3663 ext. 120 or email [email protected]
