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.
