Community Food Challenge
The Community Food Challenge is a tool to educate people about the day to day realities and challenges of accessing healthy, affordable food. This interactive experience aims to increase awareness of food security issues by simulating the challenges faced by individuals and families with limited incomes trying to obtain an adequate daily allowance of nutritious foods. Each participant needs to purchase the recommended number of servings per food groups based on the USDA’s MyPlate recommendations for one day after monthly expenses are paid. The Community Food Challenge is an excellent professional development opportunity for human services professionals, educators, and others who work with people who have financial and other challenges to overcome. This simulation will be held on Tuesday, April 26th at 8:30 a.m. in NWTC Student Center Building, room SC128. The simulation will last 1.5 hours. Register online or call Brown County UW Extension Office at 920.391.4610.
