Monday Motivation: Food for Today- Hunger Simulation Event

Cedarburg Public Library
Community Room

Event Details

Join Hunger Task Force Educator Bard Meier as he walks attendees through an interactive hunger simulation that reproduces the challenges that confront low-income individuals and families struggling to feed themselves and their families. It is designed to help people gain a greater understanding of hunger and the complex issues that impact those in poverty. This interactive, educational, and fun program is open to all ages. Children under age 10 should attend with a parent or guardian. Please register in advance to help us for planning purposes.

This program is in conjunction with the Hunger Task Force photography art show, Hunger Next Door, which is on display at Cedarburg Public Library from Sept 5th through Sept 28th. This exhibit illustrates the reality of hunger in our communities. Five Wisconsin families were given digital cameras to tell their story through photos, generously sharing their privacy with the hope of changing how we view, understand, and work to solve hunger. To learn more about Hunger Task Force, Milwaukee's free and local food bank and Wisconsin's leading anti-hunger organization, visit their website at https://www.hungertaskforce.org/.

This event is also the first in a new adult program series called Monday Motivation. This series will meet 8 times a year (almost every month except for the Mondays when CPL Book Club meets). It will cover a broad spectrum of motivational topics--expanding attendees minds to learn about new things, to get involved, or to make a difference in their lives and the lives of others. Watch for topic selections in future months and more info to come!
