Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week

Posted by: Jennifer Stevens | November 13, 2013 | 2 Comments |


National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week will take place from Sunday, November 17 to Saturday, November 23.

As a part of this year’s activities on campus, the Office of Sustainability will facilitate two events. The first event, a Weigh the Waste with Dining Services, will be held on Monday, November 18. Members of the Office of Sustainability and Dining Services will weigh all of the post-consumer waste created by students in Fresh Food Company during lunch and dinner (11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.).

The second event is a panel discussion on Wednesday, November 20, from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. The discussion will be centered around homelessness in the Lowcountry. During the discussion, only SNAP (food stamp) eligible food will be available.

I’m a little confused. Do you want donations of food stamp eligible foods, or will you be distributing eligible foods to food stamp recipients? thanks.

Rose Ann,

The Office of Sustainability will be providing food at the lunch discussion that are ‘food stamp eligible’ foods. Attendees are not required to bring food, but can enjoy some of the food provided. The idea is to bring more awareness to hunger and homelessness in the Lowcountry.
