Background Discussion

The National Coalition for the Homeless and the National Student Campaign Against Hunger and Homelessness designates the week before Thanksgiving each year (this year - November 12-20, 2016) as National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week to encourage the public to reflect on what they are thankful for and to share compassion with others in their communities.
