SIFE Hunger Simulation

SIFE Hunger Simulation

 

Hunger is one of the biggest social issues facing our country today. 

Statistics show that 35 million Americans are “food insecure.”  That means they do not know when they will eat their next meal.  On the national level, one in ten households do not have access to enough food for an active and healthy life.  The people most at risk are children, the poor and the elderly.  The issue is growing.

Each week, the Second Harvest of North Central Ohio is providing food and grocery products to 5,000 more people than it did just four years ago.  The choices many individuals and families now face are frightening.  They find they must choose between paying for medical bills or food, mortgage or food, transportation or food and utilities or food. 

The students in Lorain County Community College’s SIFE (Students in Free Enterprise) program hosted a Breakfast Banquet on campus to bring awareness to the hunger issue.   

The attached “Eye on Campus” video highlights the event and its goals.
