SPRINGFIELD, MO. -- Missouri State students learn about global inequality at the hunger banquet.

The school hosts this event each year as part of Public Affairs Week.

Students are divided into three classes for a meal. Some sit at tables and get a full dinner; others sit on the floor and are only given rice.

It's an interactive event with a call to action.

"In the end, we finalize with a piece encouraging students to go out into the community and make a difference," says Brittany Donnellan, chairperson. "Hunger really does exist in the Ozarks and globally and we have the opportunity to better the lives of others and help improve this."

Public Affairs Week at Missouri State encompasses programs that promote ethical leadership, cultural competence and community engagement.
