The U.S. Department of Agriculture is hosting a “hunger seder.”

The seder on Wednesday, the first of its kind, is “a forum to bring hunger, food insecurity and sustainable production and consumption issues to the table,” according to a statement from Jewish Funds for Justice and the Progressive Jewish Alliance, organizations co-hosting the seder with Tom Vilsack, the agriculture secretary.

Greg Rosenbaum, who runs Empire Kosher, is sponsoring the meal.

Officiating will be Rabbi Jack Moline of the Conservative Agudas Achim congregation in Alexandria, Va., who is close to the Obama administration, and Rabbi Dara Frimmer of Temple Isaiah, a Reform synagogue in Los Angeles.
