Hunger 101 Simulation - educational opportunity for groups!


Cause Areas


It's flexible! We'll work with your schedule.


This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.


Minnesota Hunger 101 is a unique role play simulation in which participants are asked to take on the life circumstances of someone in Minnesota at risk for hunger. The goal of the simulation is for each participant to try and get enough food to feed his or her family for 1 day by tapping the resources of the food shelf, county human service office (applying for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program - SNAP), grocery store and the bank.

Minnesota Hunger 101 is designed to accommodate groups of 10 - 30 participants. It can be accomplished in a 60 to 90 minute time frame and we can bring the simulation to you! The recommended minimum age to participate is 12-years-old.
