Organize a dining hall fast
Are you a student looking for a way to help? If your high school or university offers prepaid meal plans, consider holding an Oxfam America dining hall fast. It’s an easy way to reach lots of students and raise funds to benefit Oxfam America’s work.
Dining halls on most campuses are operated by a food service company that contracts with the school to prepare and serve students’ meals. On the day of your dining hall fast, you and a group of like-minded students agree to give up one meal, and the food service company agrees to donate a percentage of the cost of that meal to Oxfam. These small donations add up—and get big results. Find step-by-step instructions in our menu of event ideas.
