Annual BYU Hunger Banquet March 6-7 to spotlight global income disparity

Brigham Young University’s Students for International Development will host the 19th Annual Hunger Banquet Friday and Saturday, March 6-7, in the Wilkinson Student Center Terrace.

Tickets go on sale Monday, March 2, for $7 at the WSC Information Desk, $6 with a college-level textbook published within the last seven years to donate, or $8 at the door. The event is open to the public.

Attendees will be randomly assigned to sit in a high-, middle- or low-income geographical area and provided a meal corresponding to their assigned income class, creating a visual and culinary representation of the global wealth disparity.

This year's banquet will include speakers who understand the issues faced by all involved in international development and how to engage in helping with these issues.

All proceeds from the event will be donated to student-selected aid organizations operating across the globe to relieve the suffering of those in need. Past recipients include Sowers of Hope, Koins for Kenya, Kedesh, Reforestation and Turn International.

For more information, see the Web site at kennedy.byu.edu/student/SID, or contact Lee Simons at (801) 422-2652.
