Virtual Hunger Simulation

1 in 5 Arkansans are food insecure.ย For children that number jumps to 1 in 4. What does being food insecure mean? At some point during the yearโ€”due to job loss, marital status, or natural disastersโ€”your household is suddenly disrupted because you are without enough money and nearby resources to feed yourself or your family. This hunger simulation will allow you to experience a day in the life of a person facing hunger, and the heart wrenching decisions they must make daily to survive. Could you survive a day lived by neighbors facing hunger?ย Take the virtual Hunger Simulation.
