We are honored to announce our keynote Address for the 2018 hunger banquet:

Food Insecurity


What is THE Hunger Banquet?

The Hunger Banquet is a yearly non-profit event organized by the Global Health Student Interest Group at IUSM that aims to raise awareness surrounding the issue of hunger, as it exists both locally and abroad. The proceeds from the event are donated to two worthy organizations in Eldoret Kenya:

  • Tumaini Children’s Drop-In Center, a center to feed, clothe, educate, and offer job training to street children, and

  • The Orphans and Vulnerable Children Program which works to provide food, material assistance and advocacy for area orphan, HIV-afflicted, and impoverished children

At IU School of Medicine, this event includes:

  • A talk with a keynote speaker
  • A silent auction with items including paintings, hand-woven baskets, gift certificates from local restaurants, breweries, and much more!
  • An enjoyable evening out with friends!
