Last week, a group of our senior high students attended Southeast Helping Hands’ brand new educational initiative: Hungry No More. On the two day workshop they experienced some of the obstacles and complexities facing people in need in the Steinbach area – including a role-play as a food bank visitor! By the end of our time together it was very obvious that the students (and staff) had grown in their appreciation for and awareness of their surrounding neighbours. NCI will continue to look for opportunities to educate and activate our students, and engaging programs like this are an essential part of the solution.
