The world community has the means and resources to end world hunger. What is lacking is the will to act. To develop a profound appreciation for the disparity of food distribution around the globe and, most importantly, find small and grand ways in which you can be of help in ending world hunger, come and participate in the World Hunger Banquet. The World Hunger Banquet is a highly interactive, richly participatory simulation of hunger as it impacts the human family. The simulation will be facilitated by Adelphi students, followed by a discussion of all participants with the student leaders and Tom Lyons, Long Island coordinator for Heifer International, a sixty year old non-profit organization dedicated to ending world hunger. Come experience this simulation, appropriately happening one week before the United States’ celebration of Thanksgiving.
This event is part of the ICAN collaboration project. It is sponsored by the ICAN Poverty Workgroup, the Ruth S. Ammon School of Education, the Center for Student Involvement, and the Sociology Department.
