National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week

National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week is held each year the week before Thanksgiving. This is a time for us all to start to think about what we are thankful for, a perfect time to share our compassion with our neighbors who are experiencing homelessness and work toward a world where no one has to experience Hunger and Homelessness.

The Service-Learning Center is hosting the 3rd annual week of educational programming that will allow our campus communities to come together around the topics of Hunger and Homelessness and to spur conversations around how each of us can serve as a catalyst for making our local communities free of Hunger and Homelessness.

Review the schedule of Hunger and Homelessness Week of events. Please feel free to join us for as many of these programs as you wish to – all are welcome to attend. If you have any questions please contact Dr. Jenn Marts, director of Service-Learning, at or at 704.330.6824.
