Martin Luther King Week: Hunger Banquet

Students will participate in a unique and memorable event, an Oxfam Hunger Banquet, which allows organizers and participants alike to experience firsthand how our decisions affect others in the world. This project is awareness based and will include local and global perspectives. The event will include a panel of professionals associated with hunger and homelessness and an interactive meal program led by student leaders from various programs on campus. After a Hunger Banquet event, few participants leave with full stomachs, but all possess a greater understanding of the problems of hunger and poverty and will hopefully be motivated to become engaged.

Sponsored by Feinstein Center for Service Learning and facilitated by Sarah Miller, Coordinator, Feinstein Center for Service Learning.
