Temple Adat Elohim and Ascension Lutheran Church are proud to host the last stop for “This Is Hunger,” a national touring exhibit that will be in Thousand Oaks from February 10th to 14th. This first-of-its-kind free exhibit will bring Conejo Valley residents face to face with the stark realities of hunger through state-of-the-art storytelling techniques and interactive elements.
To raise awareness about the prevalence of hunger in the Conejo Valley, Temple Adat Elohim and Ascension Lutheran Church partnered with MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger to bring “This Is Hunger” to a local audience. The exhibit features portraits by an internationally renowned photojournalist, and the stories of dozens of Americans who have had difficulty putting enough nutritious food on the table each day. Through digital and hands-on activities, “This Is Hunger” takes participants on a compelling journey that draws them into the real-life circumstances of these individuals and deepens their awareness about who in America struggles with hunger and why. Visitors are then encouraged to educate others and advocate for change.
“This Is Hunger” is housed in a 53-foot-long double expandable semitrailer that, when parked and opened on both sides, provides nearly 1,000 square feet of exhibit space. The exhibit is wrapping up a 16-month national tour that has stopped in more than 40 cities across the country.
