Joel Jacob

help end hunger. This is the largest
corporate donation in the history of
the United States.
Jacob is also a driving force in
the battle to alleviate hunger in
Israel, where more than one-third
of the children live below the
poverty level. Joel travels there
frequently to meet with members
of the Knesset and ministers in the
coalition government, working with
them to develop a national school
breakfast and lunch program.

Changing The World
For Jacob, the reason for his devo-
tion and drive is simple.
"How many things can we work
on and know that we can change
the world?" he said. "Hunger is one
of them where we know that if we
do certain things, we can end hun-
ger as we know it today"
Born in Detroit, Jacob is the
former chairman of Kids Kicking
Cancer, the Leonard N. Simons
Jewish Community Archives and
the United Jewish Communities
Young Leadership Cabinet
Michigan Region.
He is also the founder and presi-
dent of CEO's Under 17, a program
that teaches entrepreneurial skills
to inner-city youth. He is a member
of Congregation Shaarey Zedek.
Jacob also is the recipient of the
United Way Heart of Gold Award.
He and Lauren are the proud par-
ents of five children.
Max Finberg, director of the
USDA Center for Faith-Based and
Neighborhood Partnerships, will be
the program's featured speaker.
