A group of students looks at an exhibit on hunger Saturday at the Fayetteville Farmers’ Market. The exhibit is from MAZON, a national advocacy organization inspired by Jewish values and ideals that is working to end hunger across the United States and Israel. The exhibit is housed inside a 53-foot-long big rig and is designed as a 45-minute experience for 30 guests at a time. The exhibit will be at the Fayetteville square through Wednesday. Visitors need to make a reservation through the website thisishunger.org.
