KCOM SOMA partners to host Hunger Banquet - Student Osteopathic Medical Association

KCOM SOMA partners to host Hunger Banquet

Kirksville's SOMA chapter partnered with Student National Medical Association to put on the annual Hunger Banquet.  The event simulated world hunger with accurate, eye-opening scenarios.  It was followed by a meal correlating to each person's level of wealth; the low income group (making up the majority) ate rice on the floor, the middle income had rice and beans at a table, and the high income group was served a full meal at a nicer table. As most of us go about our days not wondering IF we'll be able to have dinner, but rather WHEN, it was great to have students and faculty come together for 90 minutes to learn about the alarming statistics on an issue that plagues so many worldwide.  Resources and scenarios were designed and provided by OXFAM America, a "global organization working to right the wrongs of poverty and hunger".
