IU Northwest student groups to host Oxfam Hunger Banquet on March 27

Event planned by SGA and Sigma Alpha Pi chapter of NSLS to highlight World Hunger Issues

Friday Mar 15, 2013

The Indiana University Northwest Student Government Association (SGA) and IU Northwest’s Sigma Alpha Pi chapter of the National Society of Leadership & Success (NSLS) are proud to announce the Oxfam Hunger Banquet, with activities planned to promote awareness of global food shortage issues at 12 p.m., Wednesday, March 27 in the John W. Anderson Library Conference Center.

At this event, attendees will draw tickets at random that assign them to a high-, middle- or low-income status. Individuals will then receive a corresponding meal – filling and nutritious or sparse and simple. When the meal is done, guests are invited to share their thoughts and take action.

After an Oxfam America Hunger Banquet event, few participants leave with full stomach, but all will possess a greater understanding of hunger and poverty.

Seating is limited to 100. Tickets are $5 and are available in the Student Activities Office, located in the Savannah Center, Room 217.

The Student Government Association is IU Northwest’s student governance organization, and the Sigma Alphi Pi chapter of the National Society of Leadership & Success is IU Northwest’s leadership program.
