1. The 2nd Annual Hunger Meal
Monday, 6 May, 6 p.m.
Tripp Commons, Memorial Union
From Andrew’s announcement email: “The Hunger Meal is designed to be an opportunity for all to learn about food and hunger and momentarily experience the unequal distribution of food resources. The event provides participants with a meal; however, whether one gets a gourmet dinner, a meal of rice and beans, or something in between will be determined by chance, reflecting the way many receive their lot in life. In addition to the meal, we’ll screening the recently released documentary, “A Place at the Table,” a film that explores hunger and food policy in America.” Please arrive between 5:50 pm and 6:10 pm so we can seat you and get the drawing started! If you did not RSVP but would like to come, please email Andrew Walsh!
