  • Oxfam Hunger Banquet   7:30 PM - 9:30 PM, For information contact the UNF International Center 

Hosted by the International Center as a means of spreading awareness of global poverty and hunger. 100 invited guests will randomly draw tickets that assign them to different income levels, based on the latest statistics about the number of people living in poverty. Depending on where they sit, some receive a filling dinner, while others eat a simple meal, or share sparse portions of rice and water. Oxfam America Hunger Banquet guests can also take on the roles of real people from around the world and share their experiences with others. While not all guests leave with full stomachs, many gain a new perspective on the root causes of hunger and poverty—and will feel motivated to do something to help.
