The Cobb County Public Library System is offering teens an opportunity to fight hunger in Cobb County while having fun with its Hunger Games Challenge. The event will be held on Thursday, Sept. 13 at 4 p.m. at the Central Library. Middle and high school students are encouraged to attend, and registration is required.
The challenge will be based on the popular Hunger Games book and movie, which tells the story of a post-apocalyptic society with rampant hunger, where teens fought to save their lives and for food for their district. At the event, teens will be split into teams (like the districts from the novel) and will earn points based on challenges. Teens are encouraged to bring food items to earn points for their team. These items will be donated to MUST Ministries, a nonprofit that provides food and services to meet the basic needs of people living in poverty.
