TWU Hunger Banquet Nov. 17

10/5/04


DENTON — Texas Woman's University will host the Fourth Annual Hunger Banquet, which dramatizes the distribution of resources and wealth in the world, Nov. 17 beginning at 5:30 p.m. in room 207 of the Student Center, located at the southwest corner of Bell Avenue and Administration Drive. Participants are asked to donate a canned good. The event is open to the public.

As participants arrive, they will be given biographies of persons they will represent and be divided into social classes. The lowest social class will sit on the floor and eat rice without utensils and the highest class will sit at a table and eat a full meal. The purpose is to help Hunger Banquet participants visualize the issue of world hunger.

The event is sponsored by the TWU Center for Student Development, the Campus Activities Board, Habitat for Humanity International, Aramark Dining Services, the TWU Counseling Center and Helping Hands, a student community service organization.

The Hunger Banquet is held as part of National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, Nov. 10-19. For information on the event, contact Jennifer Garrett at (940) 898-3593.
