Oxfam Hunger Banquet

hunger banquet

During our annual Community Day, Alverno College students took part in an Oxfam Hunger banquet. Participants drew random tickets to determine where they would be seated. A small percentage were served a decent meal of pasta, salad and cranberry juice, a larger percentage was served beans, rice and water, and the vast majority received only a small bowl of rice. The exercise demonstrated food inequality around the world, and really opened the eyes of students, faculty and staff participating.
