Listen, learn, and act
This Thanksgiving, bring together your friends and family to engage in critical conversations about hunger.
In the US, $218 billion is spent per year “on the growing, processing, transporting, and disposing of food that is never eaten.” Yet, 1 in 7 Americans still go hungry.
Act Now by starting conversations about hunger at your Thanksgiving dinner. Transform your table into a place of generous learning, listening, and action.
As we gather around a table of family or friends, commit to opening your table to conversations about food insecurity and hunger.
Use these three discussion guides and DIY resources to root your discussion of food insecurity in Jewish values and foster a brave space for people to meaningfully engage with each other’s experiences and ideas.
