The 'Dinner at the Park' stunt from Oxfam Novib was set up to remind people not to take a full plate of food for granted. The stunt was staged in Amsterdam's Vondelpark, so that when people sat down on a particular bench, they were instantly entertained by musicians, fire eaters, waiters who served only them a meal. However, before these people could finish their meals, the dinner and the show disappeared just as quickly as it came, reiterating that not everybody is so fortunate as to have food in front of them all the time.

This clever stunt stirred up plenty of interest in the park, especially just for people who were out on a stroll, not expecting to be served dinner after sitting down on a rather ordinary park bench.
