Mickey and Michael Tikkun Olam Project
Mickey Zeff & Michael Boussina – two ‘special needs’ youth giving back to others and reminding us that we each have blessings to be thankful for and special gifts to share with others.
More than 1 in 8 Americans struggle with hunger — that's 42.2 million people
This Is Hunger is a high-impact, experiential installation on wheels — literally, it’s a big rig. When the 53-foot-long double expandable trailer is parked and open on both sides, it provides nearly 1,000 square feet of interior space to take participants on a two-part journey: to understand the stark reality of hunger in America and to take action to end hunger once and for all.
The Mickey and Michael Tikkun Olam Project, collected over 170 pounds of fruit from local backyards and delivered the food this past week to St. John’s Women’s Shelter and Loaves and Fishes. This is food that would probably have gone to waste and was so greatly appreciated by the organizations who feed those who are less fortunate. To the delight of the recipients, Mickey Zeff himself helped to deliver the fruit.
