Burlington Hunger Banquet

Poverty and hunger are for the most part out of sight and therefore out of mind for most of us.

This holiday season, however, you are invited to an event that promises to call our attention to the injustice of the world and challenge us to do something about it.

The Oxfam Action-Corps is bringing a number of Vermont's leading social justice, anti-hunger, and environmental activists together for an Oxfam Hunger Banquet. The banquet will include stories, singing, and a meal designed to simulate the real life conditions of disparity separarating the world's richest and poorest populations.

WARNING: You may not get your fair share!
