WINDHAM- Students and staff at Windham High School aim to raise awareness of global hunger and funds for a deserving Haitian family, whose home was lost in the earthquake, at the “Hunger Banquet for Haiti”. The event will take place on March 20 at 5:30 p.m. in the Windham High School cafeteria and is open to the public. A Hunger Banquet requires guests draw tickets at random that assign them each to either a high, middle, working or low-income class. They will then receive a corresponding meal. For example, 1 percent of the participants will represent the high income group and will be served a full Haitian meal with dessert, while 33 percent will represent the working class income level and have bean sauce, rice and water. Participants will be able to discuss how they felt from the different income perspectives following the meal. Windham High School students are helping to coordinate the event as part of their senior projects and Girl Scouts from Windham are serving the meals. A $20 donation for adults and $15 for students is requested. Haitian themed art, created by students at Windham Center School and items made by Haiti artisans will be available to purchase. All proceeds will go towards rebuilding in Haiti. For information or Reservations contact Annie Cronin @ 860-227-2538, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
