Description: Special Events.

This event provides an opportunity for participants to experience what it means to be among world's 1 billion undernourished people.

Participants will randomly draw tickets that assign them to different income levels, based on the latest statistics about the number of people living in poverty. Depending on where they sit, some participants will receive a filling dinner, while others will eat a simple meal or share sparse portions of rice and water.

Participation is limited to 100. Tickets will be given on a first-come, first-served basis. Students may line up outside the Husky Den Room at 5 p.m. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m.

Monetary donations will be accepted at the event. Proceeds will be split between local food shelves and Oxfam America. OxFam America is an international relief and development organization that battles poverty, hunger and injustice.
