Dear Cambridge, Peace Be Unto You,

Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week is an annual program where people come together across the country to draw attention to the problems of hunger and homelessness. Participating groups spend the week holding a series of educational, service, fundraising, and advocacy events. http://hhweek.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/Share-your-table-guidelines...

Hold a Local Awareness Week
More than 700 community organizations, churches, high schools, college groups, and others will participate in Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week this year. You should join them. Host the Awareness Week in your community. Organize a series of events this November to shine a light on these critical issues.

Participate in Your Local Week
Want to help address hunger and homelessness in your community? Whether you want to participate as an organizer, a volunteer, a donor, or an attendee, there are lots of ways to get involved with your local Awareness Week.

Why Get Involved?
You have real political power that you can add to the struggle to end hunger and homelessness. You can educate your community members and decision makers, change the conversation about stereotypes, improve policy, help service providers, and so much more. By joining in Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, you can come be part of something big!

Priority Event: Nationwide Food & Clothing Drive
Every location will hold its own assortment of events during their Awareness Week, but we strongly encourage every site to include a food and clothing drive in the mix. There’s a pressing demand for donations during the winter months, so your drive can meet an immediate need in the community. After the Week, we’ll add everything up and announce the total amount we were able to collect by working together.

Ending the Criminalization of Homelessness
Each year, we prioritize one advocacy issue as part of the Week’s message. This year, that issue is the criminalization of homelessness. Many cities have passed laws making it illegal for the homeless to sit, stand, sleep, or eat in public spaces. In some, it’s also illegal to distribute food to hungry individuals on the street. If your city has passed similar laws, take a little time during your Week to speak out.

Our Sponsors
Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week is sponsored by the National Coalition for the Homeless and the National Student Campaign Against Hunger and Homelessness.
