800 million people suffer
from chronic hunger. Every
3.6 seconds, a person dies from hunger and other preventable
One may think that hunger is about
too many people and too little food. Not
true. Our rich and bountiful planet produces enough to
feed every woman, man and child on earth. The
root of hunger lies in the inequalities in access to education
and resources. The results are illiteracy, poverty, war and
the inability to grow or buy food.
is a Hunger Banquet?: Young Church Ministry is sponsoring A Hunger Banquet
which is a dramatic representation of the inequitable
distribution of the world's abundant food supply. The event

and low-income classes of citizens around the world. Participants
draw different tickets to determine where they will sit:

with the 30% who eat a simple meal, such as pasta and sauce;
or with the 55% who eat bread and water.
Does anything else happen? During the presentation,
Guest Speakers will lead each class in a “dinner table”
discussion generating perspectives, feelings, and thoughts.
. After the
half-hour interactive presentation, social time and an open
buffet will be offered.

WILL IT COST:

be volunteering time to help those who are unable to help
themselves. We welcome personal and business sponsorship.
