The word "banquet" conjures up the image of a feast; delicious food and lots of it. For the past 22 years, students at BYU have hosted a Hunger Banquet — a banquet where the goodies are not doled out equally. In fact, most of the attendees go away hungry, at least physically, but filled with a very tangible vision of the scope of global poverty.
This year's event, the 23rd Annual Hunger Banquet, is truly “thinking globally while acting locally,” not only by raising awareness, but also by benefiting a local organization which helps international refugees in northern Utah.
That’s this week on The Cricket and Seagull.
