Join in the last installment of the USG Civic Engagement Fall 2017 series on Monday 13th November. The Universities at Shady Grove Student Council and University of Maryland Eastern Shore Campus Kitchen Project are hosting the second annual Hunger Banquet from 5 pm to 7 pm in the multi-purpose room of building two on the campus.
What is a Hunger banquet?
A hunger banquet is an interactive event which showcases the inequality of food distribution and food insecurities on a local, national, and international level. The purpose of this event is to raise awareness of hunger and show the disparity of food distribution as it relates to social class. The goal of this event is to not only educate members of the community about hunger awareness but to also empower them to do something about it. Review attached flyer for further details and RSVP using this link.
