University of Akron
Adam Schoch of Tallmadge attended an Oxfam Hunger Banquet at The University of Akron to gain a hands-on understanding of poverty and hunger. Schoch is majoring in civil engineering. The event was hosted by serveAkron Nov. 15.
The Oxfam Hunger Banquet is an interactive dinner and presentation that discusses international injustices faced by women. As students entered the event, they received a "dinner card" that indicated their income level for the evening. Based on that income level, students sat at a high, middle, or low-income table and were served a meal that corresponded to their income level. High income students dined on chicken, pasta, vegetables, a plated dessert, coffee or tea and water. Middle-income students received beans, rice, rolls, tea and cookies. And low-income diners were served beans, rice and water.
