This Is Hunger is a powerful and interactive exhibit, housed in a big rig, that takes individuals on a journey—one that that will challenge their beliefs about who in America struggles with hunger and why, and inspire them to take action.
Join NCJW on Thursday, June 15 at 10:00 am for a private tour of the exhibit. This Is Hunger is a high-impact, experiential installation on wheels—literally, it’s a big rig. When the 53-foot-long double expandable trailer is parked and open on both sides, it provides almost 1,000 square feet of interior space to take participants on a voyage of awareness and activism: to help them understand the stark reality of hunger in America and to spark their commitment to taking action that will help end hunger once and for all.
1) Part One: Illuminate—Participants enter the truck and are invited to sit at a communal table to meet, virtually, real people struggling with hunger. Portraits are projected at each end of the table, one by one, as they share their stories in their own voices and in their own words.
2) Part Two: Advocate—At the end of Part One: Illuminate, participants are invited to engage in activities and experiences to deepen their awareness about the complexities of being hungry and to join MAZON in educating the rest of our nation and advocating for change.
Please plan to arrive no later than 9:45. Attendees arriving after 10 may not be admitted to the exhibit.
The exhibit is open to all ages but please be advised that this is a museum environment and includes a 14-minute audio-visual experience during which guests will be asked to sit quietly. There will be an ADA lift available to enter the truck. If you anticipate needing to use the lift instead of the stairs, please arrive at the truck 5-10 minutes early.
*Please Note: This Is Hunger is a 45-minute timed-entry experience for 30 guests, and we will begin promptly at the scheduled time.Visit thisishunger.org to learn more about the program.
