An Experience that Won’t Be Forgotten

You are invited to the MANNA Network Poverty Simulation, we hope you will join us. The MANNA network is focused on ending hunger in Western North Carolina, which requires a level of understanding around why someone would find themselves in need of food at a pantry.

It can be difficult to understand why people cannot escape poverty or why they make the choices they do. This poverty simulation sets the tone for a deeper level of understanding around systemic obstacles for those in poverty and the experience inspires conversation around involving, uniting and educating others around hunger relief.

The evening begins at 5:30pm on Thursday, May 21st at 375 Hendersonville Rd. Asheville

Hosted by MANNA network partner, Foster’s Seventh Day Adventist Church. Dinner and childcare will be provided.

Save your space now, despite news reports, the economy has not recovered for many of us in Western North Carolina and the problem of food insecurity is growing. Please R.S.V.P. so we can plan accordingly.
