National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness WeekNIU students and faculty/staff groups are teaming up with community organizations to present a slate of events in recognition of the National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week, scheduled from Saturday, Nov. 15, through Sunday, Nov. 23.

The goal is to educate NIU students about hunger and homelessness in their neighborhoods, their country and around the world while introducing them to the variety of ways they can help end hunger.

This year’s Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week at NIU will feature a variety of service, reflection and educational opportunities for students, faculty and staff.

Other activities include a movie screening, poverty simulations and canned food drives. All events are free to attend; however service events require pre-registration as spots are limited.
