Oxfam Hunger Banquet @RooseveltU this Thursday, Nov. 16

Issues of food insecurity and homelessness are present on university and college campuses worldwide. Roosevelt recognizes that we are not exempt from the concerns of those students who identify in this way, and are dedicated to providing resources, support, and advocate for those in need.

Sponsored by the Black Student Union and the RU Counseling Center, the Oxfam Hunger Banquet provides a chance for us to address the severity of food insecurity and starvation as it relates to our community, and will assist in fostering a community of care that will allow us to join in the fight against inequality, injustice, and oppression. Oxfam is a global organization working to end the injustice of poverty.

On Thursday, Nov. 16th, 1-4pm in the Congress Lounge, come join us for a surprise dinner party, where the biggest surprise is learning your reaction to what’s on the menu! This event is free and open to all Roosevelt University faculty, staff, and students. Roosevelt IDs will be checked upon entrance to the event.

Please come and engage in a meaningful conversation about how food insecurity is prevalent and relates to our community while you learn more about issues of hunger, sustainability and how you can help. Please register for the event here.
