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.

Visit thisishunger.org to learn more about the program. Don't see a time that works for you? Visit this page to see all of our tour stops.

Please contact Daniela Meltzer the Membership and Community Engagement Director at 503.293.7313 or programs@nevehshalom.org for help with registration or questions about the schedule.



THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE YOUR VISIT

  • Guests are highly encouraged to arrive 5 minutes early. Guests arriving later than 5 minutes past their reserved time slot will not be admitted.
  • 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.
  • Parents, at their discretion, are welcome to bring children of all ages to visit the truck as a family. 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.
  • There will be an ADA lift available to enter the truck. If you anticipate needing to use the lift instead of the stairs, please arrive at the truck 5-10 minutes early.
  • In the case of inclement weather, please call the venue. If they are closed, then This Is Hunger is also closed.
  • No food or drink allowed in trailer.
