How many times have you heard the phrase, “I’m starving!” before going to eat dinner at Usdan? Is that what hunger really looks like? What about on a global scale?
Are you ready to find out?

Join us for a Hunger Banquet sponsored by the Hunger and Homelessness Program, and the Interfaith Council!

A Hunger Banquet is an interactive simulation of global inequality related to food, hunger, and income. Attendees will share a meal and participate in a discussion facilitated by fellow Wesleyan students.

Tickets or non-perishable items are required for admittance. Tickets will be available for a minimum $2 donation at Usdan during lunch on 10/27, 10/31, 11/1, and 11/2. You can also RSVP on Facebook.

Will you be one of the lucky ones? Or will you leave hungry?

Date: Wednesday, November 2
Time: 5:00-6:30 PM
Place: Albritton 311
Cost: $2+ donation or non-perishable items
