"Few experiences bring to life the inequalities in our world more powerfully than an Oxfam America Hunger Banquet event. Unique and memorable, the Oxfam America Hunger Banquet event allows organizers and participants alike to experience firsthand how our decisions affect others in the world....After an Oxfam America Hunger Banquet event, few participants leave with full stomachs, but all possess a greater understanding of the problems of hunger and poverty and will hopefully be motivated to do something about them." -Oxfam website
