ODESSA, TX (KWES) - Be the Change is hosting a social experiment called Oxfam Hunger Banquet: Poverty Awareness to inform the public on the reality of poverty.

Guests will be randomly seated in a high, middle, or low-income spot which will dictate the amount of food they receive.

Students and teachers will then explain about what poverty means, putting them in the shoes of over millions living in poverty.

The banquet will be at 3 p.m. December 2 at the Odessa College Saulsbury Conference Room, 201 W University Blvd.

Guests can also donate at the event. Funds will go to Be the Change leadership while coats, blankets and cans will go to veterans and the homeless.

Be the Change is a program at the Odessa College Technical Early College High School
