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 people 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.
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.

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?
