Jewish Family Services Dallas
Join JFS Dallas for the interactive Food Pantry Experience, a simulation that teaches people what it’s like to be struggling to put food on the table. You’ll be split into “families” and work together to get food for a week with a limited budget, leading to a discussion about hunger and health for families who are living in poverty. During the simulation, the group will walk across the street to Walmart where they will make decisions about what food to buy to feed their family and learn the value of a dollar. After purchasing the food and heading back to JFS, youth will use the food that they purchased to stock the shelves in the JFS Food Pantry.
