BYU plans annual Hunger Banquet March 14-15

Proceeds to be donated to global aid organization

The Brigham Young University Students for International Development Club will host the 18th annual Hunger Banquet on Friday and Saturday, March 14-15, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Wilkinson Student Center Terrace.

Tickets may be purchased for $7, or two for $12, in advance from the WSC Information Desk beginning March 10. Tickets purchased at the door are $8. The event is open to the public.

Parties will be randomly assigned to sit in a high-, middle- or low-income areas in order to raise awareness about the inequality of global wealth. Meals provided will correspond to each respective income class.

Performing groups from the Utah area featuring a variety of culturally diverse music will provide live entertainment during dinner.

Dinner will be followed by a keynote address on Friday from Valerie Hudson, a BYU political science professor and principal researcher for the WomenStats Project, and on Saturday from Kathy Headlee, founder of Mothers Without Borders. Both will address the challenges involved in fighting poverty and hunger and will share ways in which citizens can be involved in ending the struggle.

All proceeds to the event will be donated to global aid organizations selected by students to alleviate the suffering of those in need.

A megafire induced over a century’s worth of erosion near Utah Lake — but there’s more to the story, say BYU scientists

October 22, 2021
In burned watersheds where the wildfire had consumed stabilizing vegetation and leaf litter, the rain had caused massive erosion. There was a 2,000-fold increase in sediment flux compared to unburned areas, creating a plume of ash and soil moving into Utah Lake that was visible from space.
