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 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.

Our one-hour educational workshop works with adults to confront myths surrounding hunger in the Southern Tier as well as an interactive activity where participants have the chance to walk through a day in the life of a food insecure individual in our community.

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 workshops from the Just Neighors program, which educations congregations about poverty, spurs them to a greater service, and sends them forth as advocates for their neighbors in need.
