TWU hosts Fifth Annual Hunger Banquet Nov. 15


DENTON — Texas Woman’s University will host its Fifth Annual Hunger Banquet, which dramatizes the distribution of resources and wealth in the world, Nov. 15 beginning at 5 p.m. in room 207 of the Student Union, located at the southwest corner of Bell Avenue and Administration Drive on the Denton campus.

The event is open to the public and participants are asked to donate a canned good or $1 to attend, though donations are not required. For information on the event, call (940) 898-3593.

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 sparingly, and the highest class will sit at a table and eat a full meal. The purpose is to help Hunger Banquet participants experience a simulation 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 one of many activities scheduled at TWU to mark National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, which is Nov. 13 - 10.
