A banquet where you might leave hungry

Jessica White

Registration for the Oxfam Hunger Banquet, an upcoming event meant to give students and faculty a greater understanding of hunger and poverty, is now open.

At the door, guests will draw tickets that assign them to a high-, middle-, or low-income class, relative to the latest statistics on the number of people living in poverty. Each income level will receive a corresponding meal.

During the meal, guests are invited to listen to speakers and discuss the experience.

The event is free and will take place from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Feb. 26 in the Moulton Hall ballroom. Space is limited to the first 100 people, and money can be donated to Oxfam America at the banquet.

To register, you can contact the Office of Experiential Education and Civic Engagement at 330-672-8723 or visit http://www1.kent.edu/experiential/.
