GMU Hunger Banquet

Wednesday, November 17, 2021 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM
The Hub (SUB II), Back Ballroom

Hunger Banquet Wednesday November 18th from 5-7pm You may think hunger is about too many people and too little food. That is not the case.

Few experiences bring to life these inequalities more powerfully than a Hunger Banquet event. Unique and memorable, the Hunger Banquet can help raise awareness, as organizers and participants alike experience first- hand how our decisions affect others in the world. We hope you’ll join us for this impactful experience!
