Hunger Week is an educational week of events sponsored by the William Jewell College student organization Skip-A-Meal. It focuses on the issue of hunger both locally and worldwide.

The week will begin April 23 with student Kalie George speaking on hunger and poverty in Kansas City at 7 p.m. in Yates-Gill College Union Room 221. On Tuesday, April 24, the Food Network’s Hunger Hits Home will be screened at 7 p.m., also in Yates-Gill Room 221. The annual Hunger Banquet will be held Thursday, April 26, from 6 to 8 p.m. in Gano Assembly.

Participants in the Hunger Banquet will be assigned a financial identity class. Representatives of each identity class will be fed a different meal that represents a typical meal for that class. This experience is used to represent the disparities of food consumption based on income level and societal restrictions. Also, Rick Boswell from In As Much Ministries will discuss the current impact of poverty on Kansas City. The night will conclude with an award presentation to the Skip-A-Meal program donation recipients, followed by the announcement of next year’s Skip-A-Meal co-directors.

William Jewell College is committed to bringing together talented students and gifted faculty mentors within a vibrant community sparked by a rigorous and intentional liberal arts curriculum. A full range of personal and professional development experiences are presented by the selective national liberal arts college’s location within the Kansas City metroplex of more than two million.
