National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week

November 15th to the 22nd, 2020 is National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week. This is an annual program that brings attention to the problems of hunger and homelessness. During NH week, you can participate in a series of educational, service, fundraising, and advocacy events.

Many Americans live paycheck to paycheck. The struggle to keep the basic needs fulfilled can be a daily obstacle. It takes only one misstep – an illness, injury, or temporary job loss – to place many of us on the path to poverty, hunger, even homelessness. This year, the coronavirus crisis has forced many people into difficult positions and impacted their lives.

All year long, food pantries, shelters, and other service organizations need support. They provide food, shelter, and other aid to those who need it most. These organizations require financial and service donations. Whether they are providing meals, clean towels, socks, or a place to rest, they’re vital to communities.
