Join us at 4:30 pm on Saturday March 8, International Women's Day for an
Oxfam America Hunger Banquet. See hunger in a whole new way. The place
where you sit, and the meal that you eat, will be determined by the luck of
the draw--just as in real life--some of us are born into relative
prosperity and others into poverty.

Worldwide, millions of women engage in small scale farming and are leaders
in the fight against hunger, yet they face discrimination in access to
resources like land and credit. Here in Boston, women are innovators in
building a better food system that provides healthy and sustainable
choices. Come together with Simmons College, Oxfam America and the Boston
Oxfam Action Corps to celebrate women's achievements here and worldwide in
changing the way we grow, eat, and share food so that everyone has enough
to eat, always.

 We will honor two outstanding women who are making a difference in the
food system locally and globally: Cassandria Campbell, a co-founder of
Fresh Food Generation here in Boston, and farmer and "Female Food
Hero" Birtikuan Dagnachew of Ethiopia.   For more details click here:
