The Jewish anti-hunger group Mazon is bringing its touring exhibit to New York City this week, to educate visitors about the prevalence of hunger in the U.S.
Built into a 53-foot-long trailer, the interactive exhibit features the stories of Americans struggling with hunger.
“It’s not about statistics — we wanted people to have an experience,” the lead content creator for the exhibit, Marni Gittleman, told the New Jersey Jewish News.
The exhibit, called “This is Hunger,” will be in Manhattan’s Central Park this weekend and Brooklyn’s Prospect Park the following weekend.
