HUNGER EDUCATION FOR ADULTS
Hunger Education For Adults
The Food Bank of the Southern Tier’s Hunger Education Program is largely focused on youth, but we do offer programming geared toward adult groups as well. We offer one-time hunger education opportunities for corporate groups, adult service organizations, volunteer groups, and Food Bank donors. These workshops can be a powerful tool in enriching volunteer experiences, bringing groups through the Food Bank’s doors and stewarding donors.
Hunger Education for adults consists of the Community Food Game, developed by the Atlanta Community Food Game. This one and a half hour educational workshop is a role-play experience that simulates the challenges faced by low-income individuals and families.
Incorporating Hunger Education into Workplace Days of Service
Consider adding an educational component to your workplace’s next day of service. The Food Bank of the Southern Tier’s Community Engagement Coordinator and Volunteer Coordinator are happy to work with you to design a day that incorporates team-building space, service, education and meeting space.
Incorporating Hunger Education into Congregations’ Days of Service
For congregations, we offer the use of our Just Neighbors curriculum, which educations congregations about poverty, spurs them to a greater service, and sends them forth as advocates for their neighbors in need.
