Being one of the wealthiest districts, District 4 tends to produce career tributes who volunteer to participate in the Hunger Games. These children are raised and trained to win the Games, making them stronger and much more capable of winning than the average tribute. The bread from District 4 is a salty, fish-shaped loaf, tinted green by seaweed. Their source of income is fishing and children are trained for these jobs at a young age, giving them an advantage in the Hunger Games. These citizens are adept with nets and tridents, and can swim like fish themselves.
“The main thing is the way people look at you and talk to you, because you don’t feel any different. A light never went off, like ‘Ok, I’m a new me.’ So it’s hard when people treat you differently, I mean you don’t feel any differently. It’s alienating. You feel like a zoo animal, or something. I don’t know what it is. It’s something in somebody’s eyes. It’s like not connecting, not making eye contact sometimes. And now I’m surrounded by people all the time, and I can be so lonely when everyone goes. But I have to remind myself it’s just being alone, it’s not lonely.”
