We will only eradicate hunger and homelessness by building a movement from the ground up - a movement comprised of a diverse population that demands an end to these unnecessary social ills.
By educating the public and future decision-makers, the National Student Campaign builds awareness that will help dismantle stereotypes and misinformation about homelessness, hunger, and the root causes of poverty. Once individuals have a better understanding of these problems, they are inspired to take action by volunteering, donating funds or resources, writing to their local newspaper, or calling their member of Congress. Each action brings us one step closer to ending hunger and homelessness.
Co-sponsored by the National Coalition for the Homeless and the National Student Campaign Against Hunger and Homelessness, National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week takes place during the week before Thanksgiving and consists of a series of events designed to educate the campus community, increase community service, and build campus and community coalitions. Each year, more than 750 campuses and communities participate in this week by organizing education, service and advocacy events.
