National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week00
November 12th - 16th 2012
Want your week to be successful?
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, Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week consists of a series
of events designed to educate the campus community, increase community service,
and build campus and community coalitions. More than 500 campuses and communities
participate in this week during the week before Thanksgiving each year by organizing education, service and advocacy events.
