Siloam MissionA fundraiser dinner tonight at the University of Manitoba’s Bannatyne campus will benefit Siloam Mission.

The third annual Rich Man Poor Man is being organized by students from the Faculty of Medicine, emphasizing the global inequalities of food consumption.

At every table of eight, one person is randomly selected to receive an extravagant meal, while the other seven guests receive a meal representative of what 90 percent of the world would eat.

The event strives to raise awareness about the unequal distribution of resources around the globe and how this contributes to global and local poverty. More than $5,000 has been raised for various charities since its inception, including for Winnipeg Harvest.

The dinner begins at 6 p.m. in the atrium of the Brodie Centre at 727 McDermot Avenue.
