Oxfam Hunger Banquet - December 2nd

Life isn't fair-and neither is this. Oxfam America's Hunger Banquet is a memorable, interactive event that brings the issues of hunger and poverty to life. It is a new perspective on what the statistics are really like. This is a dinner in which where you sit and the meal you eat, are determined by the luck of the draw. This is just like real life; some of us are born into relative prosperity and others into poverty. So join us in the Side Dining Hall at 5:00 PM on December 2nd and change the way you think about poverty and hunger!
