MANTENO — Poverty is difficult to understand unless you have experienced it.

That’s the message of the Poverty Simulation, which is set for 6 to 8:30 p.m. Monday at Manteno Church of the Nazarene, 698 N. Locust St. in Manteno.

The event, developed by Kankakee County Community Action, aims to bridge the gap using an interactive immersion experience. It will increase people’s sensitivity to the realities of poverty, organizers say.
