A unique dining experience that will help participants understand the plight of the millions around the world living in hunger. Participants will draw to determine the seating for high income, middle-income and low-income dining options. There will be speakers discussing hunger in local and global context. Also, there is music and free T-shirts for the first 100 attendees.
In the same way that individuals can’t choose whether they are born in a poor or wealthy country, some will end up with the “low-income” status of sitting on the floor for a meal of rice and beans. “Middle-income” guests will have chicken breast, red potatoes and seasonal vegetables served family-style, and those considered “high-income” will enjoy beef tenderloin medallions or a vegetarian option along with roasted garlic whipped potatoes, mixed green salad and chocolate cake.
Tickets are available for a donation of $5. All proceeds benefit 2nd Harvest Food Bank and the Pacific Food Pantry. Please contact: email@example.com for tickets.
