What is a Hunger Banquet?

  • A fundraiser bringing awareness to hunger issues
  • A forum where the first, second and third world eat together
  • A first hand look at the inequality that happens every day that we don't get to see
  • A simulation to help show you what it feels like to be on the other side of hunger
  • A meal with friends

At IU School of Medicine, this event includes:

  • A meal with colleagues from food donated by local vendors
  • A talk with a keynote speaker
  • Entertainment
  • A silent auction with items including paintings, hand-woven baskets, gift certificates from local restaurants, breweries, and much more!
