4th and 5th Grades Participate in Oxfam Hunger Banquet

On Friday, parent volunteers hosted the Oxfam Hunger Banquet for the 4th and 5th grade. Oxfam's website reads, " 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. [Students] 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." 

Students shared thoughtful reflections throughout the exercise about how it felt to be assigned to each group. Thank you to the parent volunteers who made this event possible!
