See how everyone else in the world eats.To be honest, I'm too selfish to give up our own family Thanksgiving meal, but I think it sounds like a good idea.
Tomorrow, as you're munching on turkey and mashed potatoes and storing leftovers for midnight snacks, why not engage your holiday guests in an activity that demonstrates just how little most of the world gets to eat? Oxfam encourages you to have a Hunger Banquet, in which attendees are proportionally grouped based on real world statistics.
So, 15% of folks will eat a healthy meal, 35% will eat rice and beans, and the rest merely get rice and water. Afterwards, there's a chance to discuss the experience and understand what the word 'meal' means to the rest of the world.
It definitely causes me to be even more thankful for the many blessings I have and too often take for granted.
