MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger

The faces of hunger in America are both familiar and hidden from view, yet they are all too real and far too many.

JCC Greater Boston is proud to host This Is Hunger, an interactive experience on wheels (literally, it’s a big rig!) brought to us by MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger.

Join us and embark on a 45-minute experience that will challenge your beliefs about who in American struggles with hunger and why, and empower you to take action.

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.

Inside the truck, the experience is divided into two parts. First, participants are invited to sit at a communal table and virtually “meet” real people struggling with hunger. Portraits are projected at each end of the table, one by one, as individuals share their stories in their own voices and in their own words. At the end of part one, participants are invited to engage in activities that deepen their awareness about the complexities of being hungry and join MAZON in educating the rest of our nation and advocating for change.

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.
