Learn what it’s like to live a month in poverty

University of Illinois Extension and Live Healthy DeKalb County Food Security Council are collaborating to facilitate a Poverty Simulation to be held from 9 to 11:30 a.m. Oct. 26 at the DeKalb County Farm Bureau Building, 1350 W. Prairie Road in Sycamore.

The objective of the simulation is to sensitize participants to the day-to-day realities of life faced by people with low incomes, 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, but advance registration is required by Oct. 22. Participation is limited.

To learn more about the simulation or to register, visit web.extension.illinois.edu/bdo or call the Extension office at 815-732-2191.

If you need a reasonable accommodation to participate in this program, contact the Extension office.
