OPIRG’s Community Volunteer Action Group, and OPIRG’s Non-Violence Now and others helped put on last night’s HUNGRY FOR CHANGE dinner – reported in the Hamilton Spectator today.
“Volunteers were dishing up lessons about inequality and social consciousness last night at a McMaster University banquet.
There was no choice. Each guest was arbitrarily assigned a meal. Forty per cent were served rice and water, 50 per cent chili, rice and water and a lucky 10 per cent dined on a four-course gourmet meal.
The plan, brainchild of the university’s Open Circle’s Volunteer Community Action Group, was to underscore the uneven division of resources around the world.
