Hunger Banquet is a Oxfam Canada’s powerful event that brings to life the inequalities in our world and challenges us—as the more economically fortunate—to realize how our decisions affect others in the world. As a reflection of this reality, few participants leave an Oxfam Hunger Banquet with full stomachs,but all leave filled with a greater understanding of the problems of global hunger and poverty and the motivation to do something about it.

Hungry4changeThe women in this community are unified: we are united. We understand we need to help each other."

Hungry4change is an educational program used to promote awareness about world hunger and poverty through fundraising events for Oxfam Canada. Over the last 15 years, this program has encouraged students, faith-based groups and others to take action on political and social issues that affect our communities locally and globally.

The funds raised will allow Oxfam Canada to continue working to eradicate poverty and promote gender justice and human rights. it's about joining Oxfam Canada's global community.
