Eat, help the hungry at EWHS

The Hunger Dinner, a free event to raise funds for the hungry, will be 6-8 p.m. Dec. 4 in the Great Hall at Edmonds Woodway High School, 7600 212th St. SW in Edmonds.

The students of the Mixed and Multicultural Club are hosting an Oxfam-sponsored Hunger Dinner that will simulate the unequal distribution of wealth and food in the world.

Donations will be accepted for the nonprofit Oxfam.

The dinner will recreate current world conditions by randomly allocating each participant a high-income, middle-income or low-income ticket which will determine the quality and quantity of food they get.

Sixty percent of participants, like the 60 percent of the world that lives in poverty, will only eat rice. The ten percent of “high income” attendees will enjoy a three-course meal. Several speakers, possibly members of the Lost Boys of Sudan, will share personal experiences of hunger, and there will be other presentations as well.

MLT Elementary Holiday Bazaar

The 24th Annual Holiday Bazaar at Mountlake Terrace Elementary will be 10 am. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 6 at the school at 52nd and 220th.

The bazaar is a place to find unique crafted items for holiday shopping from over 30 local vendors. There also will be pictures with Santa, live music, a book fair, raffle items, snack bar and more.
