WHE-AC to Hold Hunger Week March 26-30 WHE-AC is n the process of planning its winter activities. Our big project for March will be a fund raising and education week for Oxfam's Tools for Peace and Justice. We are currentiy discussing plans to adopt an Overseas Development Network (ODN) project in conjunction with the Oxfam project for our hunger week. Events for our education and fund raising week include: educational videos and or guest speakers on March 26 and 27, a benefit concert by the band Juice at the Blind Pig on March 28, and a bucket drive for Oxfam America and ODN on March 28 and 29. Last semester was full of educational activities in which many students and community members parfdpaied. The Oxfam Fast for a World Harvest was a great success. Through the combi ned efforts of many hard working people, WHE-AC was able to raise about $8,000 of which 50% will go to Oxfam America and 50% will go to local soup kitchens and shelters. We would like to send out a special thanks to all the people in the University of Michigan Residence Halls, the ICC Housing Co-ops, the University of Michigan Greek System, the People's Food Co-op, the Wildflower Community Bakery, and all those individuals in the Ann Arbor area who fasted andor donated money to help others both locally and internationally who are less fortĂșnate than ourselves. This past semester was a great success for WHE-AC. Many new people joined WHE-AC in the fall, and we would like to see even more new faces in 1990. Our meetings are held every Tuesday at 6 pm in room 4202 Michigan Union.

The Worid Hunger Education Action Committee (WHE-AC) is a campus-based organization whose focus is on educating the community on the causes of world hunger and on the solutions to worid hunger. Our goal is to understand the complex social, political, economical, and environmental torces that both crĂ©ate and promote world hunger. We recognize that true development can only be achieved by empowering people on a grass roots level. We organize projects with this perspective in mind. Consequently , we work with Oxfam America, Overseas Development Network, and the Instituto for Food and Development Policy (IFDP). WHE-AC, 4202 Michigan Union, Ann Arbor, Ml 48109; 764-3669
