Event description

Description

Stories about hunger. In their own words.

This Is Hunger Truck

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.

*Please Note: This Is Hunger is a 45-minute timed-entry experience for 30 guests, and we will begin promptly at the scheduled time.

  • We will make every effort to accommodate walk-ins, but availability cannot be guaranteed.
  • Due to security concerns, it is always best to call ahead if you do not have a reservation.
  • Recommended for school groups in 6th grade and above.
