    Jin's Bio:
    Hi, there! I'm Jin, and I am a passionate, talkative, dessert fanatic. Poems, good books, coconut water, and action movies make me happy. If we ever meet in person, you'll definitely hear me before you see me. You'll want to ask how many energy drinks I've had, but the answer will always be zero.

Oxfam Hunger Banquet

Yesterday, CSS Oxfam had our annual hunger banquet in the Heritage Room in Somers.

For some background information, CSS Oxfam is a club on campus that is part of an international organization that works to fight poverty in the world, one city at a time. Oxfam organizes educational presentations, club events, hunger hikes, informational tabling, campus-wide petitions, and hunger banquets to educate people about the disparities that exist in our city, country, and world.

The hunger banquet included a social experiment that randomly separated attendees into three different socioeconomic classes: high, middle, and low-income. Based on the randomly assigned class, the attendees ate food that would be appropriate for people in the world of that socioeconomic class. We had performers sing songs about social justice, the president of the club gave an informational presentation on world poverty statistics, and the vice-president of the club (me!) led a reflection session about the poverty experienced by the low class and the luxury experienced by the high class.

The hunger banquet was also considered a Dignitas lab for Dignity.

If you have a passion for social justice and feeding the world one city at a time, Oxfam is the perfect place for you to start!
