Event description
A powerful and interactive event that brings to life the inequalities in our world. Where will you sit?

About this Event

Once you arrive at the Hunger Banquet, you're given a ticket at random which will determine your persona for the evening: name, gender, income group, job and more. The luck of the draw sorts you into the high, middle, or low-income group and ultimately determines where you sit and the type of meal you're served.

This is an interactive event that allows you to step into someone else's shoes for a day and transport yourself on a journey to the world's toughest realities.

"Having an experience like this really helps to put you in the shoes of these people and makes you realize the seriousness and immediacy of the problems that are actually happening." - Past Hunger Banquet Guest

When: Tuesday, June 4th, 2019, 6:00pm-9:00pm

Where: Terminal City Club - 837 W Hastings Street, Vancouver, BC

FAQ’s

Will I actually leave hungry? Yes and no. During the interactive portion of the evening, the majority of attendees will be served very little – it’s the luck of the draw and a reality for many based on global statistics. Appetizers and a cash bar will be available after the formal part of the night for all to enjoy.

Is there a discount for buying a large number of tickets? Yes. If you’re looking to buy 10 or more tickets, a discount is offered. Contact us directly using the contact info below.

What is the cost of attending the Hunger Banquet? The cost for attending the Hunger Banquet ($55 CAD) is the same regardless of what income group you’re sorted into. The luck of the draw does not guarantee a scrumptious, catered meal for everyone. We will, however, be serving appetizers later in the evening for all to enjoy.

Proceeds from every ticket go to Oxfam’s hunger and poverty fighting work around the world.

If I attend with friends, can we sit together? Possibly. It depends on which income group you're sorted into. If you both draw tickets from the same group (high, middle, or low-income), you're welcome to sit together. If not, no worries - you'll meet new people and get a chance to reconvene with your friends after the simulation portion of the event.
