Life isn't fair—and neither is this. At an Oxfam America Hunger Banquet®, the place where you sit, and the meal that you eat, are determined by the luck of the draw—just as in real life some of us are born into relative prosperity and others into poverty.
When you host an Oxfam America Hunger Banquet® in your community or on your campus, you’re changing the way people think about poverty and hunger. Your event can also raise funds to support Oxfam’s life-saving work around the world. So join forty years of tradition this fall and host or attend Oxfam's memorable interactive event.
Oxfam’s 2013 toolkit, “How to host an Oxfam America Hunger Banquet®” (left), includes a step-by-step planning guide, all-new character tickets, and more.
Order free materials for your event, like promotional posters, fact sheets, or stickers.
If your event is public, add it to Oxfam’s event calendar. You can also create a custom event page to raise funds, sell tickets, and more (see an example.) If you need help promoting your event, or have more questions, tweet us at @HB_Planning.
After your Oxfam America Hunger Banquet® is over, email us at email@example.com to let us know how it went. And don't forget to share your experiences on social media using the hashtag #hungerbanquet.
