When guests arrive at the Hunger Banquet, they draw tickets at random that assign them to a high, middle, or low-income tier, based on the latest statistics about poverty around the world. Each income level has a different experience. The 20% in the high-income tier are served a sumptuous meal; the 30% in the middle-income group eat a simple meal, like rice and beans; and the 50% in the low-income tier help themselves to small portions of rice and water.
