Stuffed or Starved

"It's not fair!"

This banquet is literally what the title suggests – students can leave the lunch either stuffed or “starved”.  This unique event puts experience to the statistics.

When students come, they are proportionately and randomly sent to their continent to share their proportion of the land mass, and eat from their statistical share of food distribution.  The inequality of world food distribution is painfully obvious as the majority of the students will eat a simple small meal of plain rice while watching a few lucky North American’s be offered more than they can eat.  The experience of “It’s not fair!” should be the take home message for most students.

So, what do all those statistics really mean?

In Asia, 60% of the population lives on 30% of the land mass.  That means it’s a bit more crowded there.

In North America, 5% of the population gets 16% of the food.  They get more than their “fair share”.

The SOS banquet will put experience to those numbers in a way that is very impactful.
