A Hunger Meal is a way to experience the feelings that many people experience regularly - not getting enough to eat at a meal.
You are invited to participate in a virtual hunger meal on Thursday, Nov. 19 beginning at 6:30 PM on Zoom. After you register for the meal, you will be sent your meal plan for the meal. Some families will be in the wealthy category where you will prepare a full meal for your family to eat together at the 6:30 zoom, while other families will be in the poor category where you will have less food to prepare for the meal we will all share together while we talk about world hunger. You must sign up ahead of time to receive the menu you will prepare and to let us know how many are participating. Each household will have one type of meal to prepare and will all be eating the same food. This event will require $ to participate as you will have to purchase the meal ingredients and prepare them in advance of our 6:30 zoom meeting. The idea will be to sit down to eat together over Zoom.
There is a minimum of 4 households to sign up in order to hold the event.
What is a hunger banquet?
A Hunger Banquet encourages a deeper understanding of world food distribution and poverty.
The Hunger Banquet provides answers to questions such as: • Who are the world’s hungry? • Why are people hungry? • Is Christian action important? • What does the Bible say about the poor and the hungry?
This interactive teaching demonstration creates awareness of poverty and food distribution. A meal is provided during which everyone eats in proportion to the way food is distributed throughout the world. By experiencing world conditions, participants gain a better understanding of the disparity of food and wealth distribution. When coupled with biblical teaching, participants also learn God’s heart for the poor and the responsibility of Christians to the poor.
