You can bring this experience to your community by joining our team of volunteers, who host Hunger Banquets each year on campuses, in schools, and in cities around the US. Every single event helps grow the movement to end poverty and hunger. And Oxfam provides you with lots of support along the way. Here’s how to join us.
