Boulder County Community Action Programs is holding a “poverty simulation” event in Longmont on Oct. 19 to teach people what those with severely limited funds have to deal with on a daily basis.
According to a release from Boulder County’s Community Services department, the simulation will give residents a “budget to work with” and force them to make decisions many families have to make daily.
“Can you afford healthy food for your family, and if not who goes hungry?” the release stated. “What bills do you decide to pay this month? What do you do when a child or parent gets sick and you don’t have insurance?”
The experience will last for three hours starting at 11 a.m. and will be free to attendees, though registration is required. It will take place at the United Church of Christ of Longmont, 1500 Ninth Ave.
The release said the simulation is mean to “guide how you respond to poverty in Boulder County.”
