(Oct. 31, 2012) -- The UTSA community is invited to the 2012 Oxfam Hunger Banquet from 6 to 8 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 7 in the University Center Denman Room (2.01.28) on the Main Campus. Hosted by the UTSA student organization VOICES (Volunteer Organization Involving Community, Education and Service) and the UTSA Inclusion and Community Engagement Center, admission is free, but participants are encouraged to bring canned food to support the San Antonio Food Bank.
This experiential "banquet" will inform participants about global hunger issues and how to make a difference. More than 38 million Americans lack food, and last year, more than 27 million people used a food bank for emergency food assistance. Hunger is a problem locally and globally. There will be several guest speakers and door prizes given throughout the event. /p>
For those who cannot attend the banquet, canned food can be donated at the VOICES office in University Center Room 1.216 on the UTSA Main Campus.
According to the OXFAM International website, Oxfam is an international confederation of 17 organizations networked in more than 90 countries, as part of a global movement to build a future free of injustice and poverty. They work directly with communities and seek to influence the powerful to ensure that poor people can improve their lives and livelihoods and have a say in decisions that affect them. Oxfam believes that respect for human rights will help lift people out of poverty. The organization is a community of ordinary people with an extraordinary vision.
