The Global Leadership Project at Fort Hays State University will host the second annual Hunger Awareness Banquet and Silent Auction in partnership with Messiah Lutheran Church beginning at 6 p.m. Sept. 9 at the church, 2000 Main.

The Hunger Awareness Banquet will demonstrate the unequal distribution of global resources by using the percentage of world population at three different income levels. Three different meals will be served based on those income levels.

In addition to the banquet, a silent auction will provide funds for FHSU's SWIPE Out Hunger food packaging event taking place Oct. 13 in the university's Forsyth Library.

Tickets are $5, with all proceeds going towards SWIPE to pay for food, supplies and equipment. Donations also can be sent into the Center for Civic Leadership, Custer Hall Room 201, 600 Park. Checks can be made out to the Center for Civic Leadership with SWIPE in the memo.

Spots are limited, and the deadline to purchase tickets is Monday.

To purchase tickets, contact Kelly Nuckolls, Global Leadership Project student coordinator, at the Global Leadership Project at (785) 628-5399 or by email at glp@fhsu.edu.
