About THE NEW FACE OF HUNGER
We are a nation of staggering wealth, yet 50 million Americans, including 17 million children, struggle to put food on the table every day.
The New Face of Hunger is a dramatic educational photography exhibit that will influence how hunger is seen in America. The “face” of hunger is changing as middle class families drop into the ranks of poverty and hunger. MAZON feels compelled to address this growing issue by educating the Jewish community and others about the “new” face of hunger and rallying synagogues and individuals to advocate on behalf of the millions of Americans who face hunger daily.
The New Face of Hunger offers a unique view into the world of hunger. MAZON will present this project with an opening night showcase gala in Los Angeles. Afterwards, this exhibit will travel to synagogues across the country to further educate the Jewish and secular community about the prevalence of hunger in America.
About the Photographer
MAZON commissioned renowned photojournalist Barbara Grover to document the different “faces” of hunger in the United States.
Since winning the prestigious Ernst Haas award for her images of the Los Angeles riots, Barbara has traveled to more than 40 countries to give a face – and a voice – to the homeless, refugees, and children of war, breaking down stereotypes and distilling complex issues into compelling human narratives.
