Poverty Simulation Event - April 16th @ 6 pm

Whether you know it or not, you interact with people in living in poverty every day. Please join us on April 16 at 6pm for an interactive poverty simulation in partnership with the Greater Pittsburgh Food Bank, where we will be led on a realistic journey to experience poverty first-hand. Attendees will be assigned the roles of families with income at or below the poverty line and will understand the struggle to provide basic necessities (food, shelter, healthcare, etc.) while facing life’s circumstances.
