CALLING ATTENTION TO WORLD HUNGER

November 11, 2016

On Wednesday November 2, under the direction of Mr. Butler, CBA hosted its annual Oxfam Hunger Banquetto benefit Oxfam, Lunch Break, and several other initiatives.

The 80 students, faculty, parents and other guests in attendance were randomly selected to dine on different types and amounts of food in order to illustrate disparity in food security throughout the world. Those lucky enough to represent more affluent people had a lovely three-course dinner while those representing populations that are struggling with food insecurity were only able to consume rice and water. Students in attendance were rewarded with a dress-down day pass for Thursday.

Now in its fifth year, the Oxfam Hunger Banquet represents yet another perspective our young men stand to benefit from in their journey towards becoming moral leaders for others.

Thank you to Mr. Butler, our student leaders, and all those who made this great event possible!
