Annual BYU Hunger Banquet March 9-10 to raise global awareness

The Brigham Young University Students for International Development Club will host the annual Hunger Banquet fund-raiser Friday and Saturday, March 9-10, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Wilkinson Student Center Terrace.

Starting March 5, tickets will be available at the WSC Information Desk for $6. Tickets may also be purchased at the door for $8. The event is open to the public.

The event is designed to raise awareness about global wealth disparity and world hunger. Attendees will be randomly assigned to sit at a table representing a high-, middle- or low-income area and eat a meal corresponding to the table’s income class.

Live entertainment during the dinner will include culturally diverse music and performing groups from the Utah area. A keynote speech will follow, featuring Steve Studdert, a United Nations delegate to Active in Africa, on Friday and Kathy Headlee, founder of Mothers Without Borders, on Saturday. Both speakers will talk about the challenges involved in fighting poverty and hunger and ways in which individuals can contribute to the cause.

All proceeds from the Hunger Banquet will be donated to student-selected global aid organizations working to alleviate need around the world.
