Dr. Shaunda French-Collins’ Event Planning and Leadership class brings awareness to poverty and food insecurity in our region with the Oxfam Hunger Banquet at 6 p.m., tonight. in the Student Center Ballroom.
In its fourth year, the Oxfam Hunger Banquet is an invite-only event where attendees are assigned a poverty level, such as high class, middle class, low class, or disaster zone, when they enter. The lucky few in the upper class are served a three-course meal, while those in the lower class sit on the floor and eat rice.
The purpose of the dinner is to let guests experience what is a reality for many families in the region.
Chadron Primary School Principal Libby Uhing and CSC student Jeff Mugongo will serve as the two guest speakers.
Guests are encouraged to bring three to five non-perishable items, which will be donated to Chadron’s local food pantry.
