Hunger 101

Hunger awareness is an important part of Long Island Cares’ fight against hunger.

Our on-site presentations help educate people throughout our community about people faced with food insecurity.

Groups are educated on hunger facts, local statistics and issues, number of emergency food programs, the faces of hunger, and how Long Island Cares is addressing the problem.  Each activity engages participants by exposing the realities of hunger issues and creates opportunities to respond actively and appropriately in our communities.

Our program “Hunger 101: To Walk in the Shoes of a Person in Need” uses discussion and role-play to raise awareness and understanding of hunger and its many causes.

“Hunger 101: To Walk in the Shoes of a Person in Need” 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 person 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?
