n Nov. 21, more than 600
Jewish teens in grades
6-12 came together to fight
hunger at BBYO-Michigan Region's
pre-screening of The Hunger Games:
Catching Fire at the Palladium 12,
hosted in partnership with Yad Ezra in
Berkley. At the same time, teens in 30
cities across North America held simi-
Each individual brought a minimum
of two kosher non-perishable food
items to donate to Yad Ezra. In total,
BBYO's teens collected more than 1,100
pounds of food to directly impact the
Metropolitan Detroit community.
In exchange for their donations, teens
were treated to an exclusive screening
of the newest film in The Hunger Games
series and got to see the film before its
release to the general public.
Local BBYO teen leaders made a
film about hunger awareness that was
shown before the movie, and each
teen received a "swag bag" containing
information about how to get involved
in hunger issues as they left the event.
"The 'Hunger is Not a Game'
initiative is a great example of BBYO's
mission — More Jewish Teens, More
Meaningful Jewish Experiences:'
said Eric Adelman, director of BBYO
"BBYO used the excitement over
this film to attract hundreds of
Jewish teens, including dozens who
are otherwise unaffiliated with our
community, to learn about Jewish
values, raise awareness of hunger
in our community and to collect an
incredible amount of food for those in
need. I am proud of our teen leaders
for their commitment to making a
difference in our world:'
Palladium 12, corporate sponsor
of the event, along with co-sponsors
Bernard Wealth Management,
Lakeview Family Dental, Sherwood
Food Distributors and Zoup!, helped
make the event possible and create the
true movie premiere experience.
This programming year, BBYO is
focusing on raising awareness about
hunger as a movement-wide cause. For
