As a part of *Poverty Week* this year, MIT's Global Poverty Initiative will
be hosting a *study break with food from Bertucci's* *TONIGHT at 9PM in
Talbot*. Learn about the ways you can help *fight poverty* and enjoy some
good food and company.


I feel like it's in somewhat bad taste to recognize the suffering and starvation of millions by gorging yourself on Bertucci's, but that's just me.

It's called America.

Love it or leave it.

That is kind of funny. I guess that's why they had a picture of a piece of pizza on the poster in the Infinite advertising the Global Hunger talk?

Maybe they planned to take a picture of themselves eating pizza and then sending it to starving children in Africa?
