Since 1974, we have been working with volunteers to create awareness of hunger and inequality. 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 people who are high-, middle-, or low-income earners, demonstrating that where you end up is all in the luck of the draw.

How should I brand my event?
Oxfam Hunger Banquet® is a service mark of Oxfam America. We ask that you credit Oxfam in the title of the event and in your promotion. For example, if Harvard University held a Hunger Banquet event, it should be named the Harvard University Oxfam Hunger Banquet, not the Harvard University Hunger Banquet. Questions?
