To raise awareness about global poverty and economic inequality, Mount Wachusett Community College’s Center for Civic Learning and Community Engagement will host a hunger banquet on Thursday, Nov. 20. The hour-long event will begin at 12:30 in the South Café at the Gardner campus.
Illustrating the correlation between external factors and one’s economic standing, and consequently welfare, event organizers will serve participants meals of varying sizes consistent with global trends in food security.
The banquet falls during the Student Government Association’s Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive, which supplies meals to similarly disadvantaged MWCC students and their families.
Advance tickets are available for $1 in Room 152 and are $2 at the door. The Center will donate all banquet funds to the Students Supporting or Students (SOS) Office to support MWCC students in need.
