2019 Hunger Banquet

Thursday, November 14, 2019 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM
Johnson Center, George's - Third Floor

You may think hunger is about too many people and too little food. That is not the case. Our rich and bountiful planet produces enough food to feed every woman, man, and child on earth. Hunger is about power. Its roots lie in inequalities in access to resources. The results are illiteracy, poverty, war, and the in- ability of families to grow or buy food. Hunger Banquet can help raise awareness, as organizers and participants alike experience first- hand how our decisions affect others in the world.
