Every person deserves to live without worrying whether they’ll have food on their plate or a roof over their head. Too many who have housing are forced to make hard choices between paying for food, housing, and other critical expenses. During Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week 2022, November 12-20, we are provided another opportunity as a society to identify resources and share knowledge to end hunger and homelessness.
As a partnership project between the National Coalition For The Homeless and the National Student Campaign Against Hunger and Homelessness, Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week invites people across the country to join together to help people in immediate need, while also supporting long-term solutions. Individuals, groups and organizations are asked to use the week to volunteer, donate, and educate about hunger, homelessness and their emerging issues.
To kick off Hunger and Homelessness Week 2022, the National Coalition For The Homeless will be hosting its Lived Experience Leadership Summit, a virtual event on Saturday November 12, 2022. You can find out more about the event and register here.
