Oxfam America Hunger Banquet

Francesca Moree ’14 asks “Are you hungry?!”:

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 on April 23 at 5-6:30pm, sponsored by Oxfam America, and Haveli.

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 Professor Sarah Mahurin.

Tickets are required for admittance and will be available for a minimum $2 donation at Usdan during lunch from April 16-23.

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

Date: April 23rd
Time: 5:00 – 6:30 PM
Place: Center for African American Studies Lounge
Cost: Minimum $2 donation for ticket

Free Rice

Looking to waste some (more) time?

With finals coming up, probably not, but I figured I’d remind everyone about Free Rice — the site where you can answer vocab questions and get rice donated through the UN to help fight world hunger. 20 grains of rice are now donated for each word you get right instead of 10., and close to 400 million grains of rice were donated just yesterday.
