This Is Hunger Opening Night Gala

Wednesday, November 16 at 6:30PM

Smashbox Studios, Culver City, CA


Join MAZON, and special guest emcee LA County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl, to celebrate the revolutionary project This Is Hunger at a gala reception with project visionaries and supporters.

This Is Hunger is a powerful multimedia experience, that will shine a light on who in America struggles with hunger and why, and leave you inspired to take action. Be among the first to share in this moving program.


MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger has a long tradition of engaging the American Jewish community as well as anti-hunger organizations to become catalysts for change. However, until our nation recognizes the profound prevalence of hunger, we will never be able to rally the political will required to end it.

That’s why, in November 2016, MAZON will officially launch This Is Hunger, a powerful and unique program that will challenge beliefs about who in America struggles with hunger and why. This compelling experience will activate synagogues, and other prominent Jewish organizations across the country, to take action.

Featuring images by renowned photographer and documentarian Barbara Grover, with concept design by Marni Gittleman (of the Noah's Ark exhibit at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles), MAZON's This Is Hunger (a mobile exhibit in a customized big rig truck) provides a visceral, compelling connection to those who are hungry and those whose voices are needed at the table to help solve this issue. This Is Hunger will be on tour nationwide for 10 months with stops in and around Los Angeles, Phoenix, Tucson, Dallas, Atlanta, Miami, Washington D.C., New York, Philadelphia, Boston, Cleveland, St. Louis, Kansas City, Chicago and San Francisco.
