Mazon: This is Hunger Exhibit in Portland

Congregation Neveh Shalom
2900 Southwest Peaceful Lane
Portland, OR 97239, US (map)



This Is Hunger Comes to Our Community!

The faces of hunger in America are both familiar and hidden from view, yet they are all too real and far too many. Congregation Neveh Shalom, Congregation Beth Israel and Oregon Food Bank are 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

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.

This Is Hunger is open to the community and will be Congregation Neveh Shalom 2900 SW Peaceful Lane, Portland, OR 97239 from September 1 – 7.
