Oxfam Hunger Banquet®

Join the movement to end hunger

Since 1974, we have been working with volunteers to create awareness of hunger. Oxfam Hunger Banquets give you the opportunity to make a difference, both locally and globally. They are volunteer-led interactive events that bring statistics about poverty to life. Guests randomly select tickets matching real person who are high-, middle-, or low-income earners, demonstrating that where you end up is all in the luck of the draw.

These events help increase our power to respond to global crises, highlight issues of injustice, and change the laws that keep people trapped in poverty.

In response to ongoing hunger and famine crises, this year, you can choose to host an event that is tailored to fundraising to support the famine crises. You can download new famine-related materials, or choose to download the traditional Oxfam Hunger Banquet® suite of materials.

Each participant left saying how enlightening the Oxfam Hunger Banquet® event was. Many left expressing that they would be more mindful of ways to combat hunger.
