|Participants go 30 hours without food so that they can have a real taste of what hunger is like. As they fast, teens consume only water and juice and focus on local community assistance (like volunteering at food drives, soup kitchens or homeless shelters).
Last year, more than 8,000 teens from the New York metro area participated in the 30 Hour Famine, an international movement to fight hunger.
