« November outtakes



Randomly designated as “low income” Tayler Silacci eats beans and rice from a paper plate with a plastic fork while sitting on the floor at the Hunger Banquet at the Alex and Jeri Vereschagin Alumni House on the University of the Pacific campus in Stockton. The event was a unique dining experience that helped participants understand the plight of the millions around the world living in hunger. Those designated as “low-income” status sat on the floor for a meal of rice and beans. “Middle-income” guests had chicken breast, red potatoes and seasonal vegetables served family-style, and those considered “high-income” enjoyed beef tenderloin medallions or a vegetarian option along with roasted garlic whipped potatoes, mixed green salad and chocolate cake. All proceeds benefit 2nd Harvest Food Bank and the Pacific Food Pantry.??[CLIFFORD OTO/THE RECORD]
