Description:
At an Oxfam America Hunger Banquet, guests draw tickets that determine their economic class as they enter the event. Members of the upper class sit at tables and are served a three course meal. Members of the middle class sit on chairs are served rice and beans on a plate. Members of the lower class sit on the floor and eat plain rice out of their hands. The Iowa Oxfam Action Corps hosted this Hunger Banquet at the World Food Prize in Des Moines, Iowa.
