University of Illinois Extensionand Live Healthy DeKalb County Food Security Council are collaborating to facilitate a Poverty Simulation on Friday, October 26 from 9:00-11:30 am. The Poverty Simulation will be held at the DeKalb County Farm Bureau Building, located at 1350 West Prairie Rd in Sycamore.
The objective of the simulation is to sensitize participants to the day-to-day realities of life faced by people with low income, and motivate us to become involved in activities that help reduce poverty in our community. By taking part in the simulation, participants will experience what it is like to live a month in poverty.
The simulation is open to anyone interested in increasing their awareness of the day to day challenges of those living in poverty. There is no charge to participate in the simulation; however preregistration is required by October 22, 2018. Participation is limited.
