We just had our hunger banquet last week here. Considering this was the first year we held the event, at least the first in the memory of any current students, we had a really great turnout. I think we had 27 people come, and closer to 50 RSVP. People really liked it, we had a discussion afterward for about an hour.
This week was Hunger and Homelessness Awareness week, so we used this as a kick-off event. Since then we have collected tons of canned food and clothes to donate to local shelters. It has been really heartening to see the support, especially from some people outside the "regular" crowd.
