At the end of a long and stressful school day, the two things every student wants is somewhere to crash and lots of food. But for some, hunger and homelessness are an everyday struggle.
The Food Security Project at Fresno State is kicking off National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week from Monday, November 13, until Friday, November 17. Throughout the week, daily events and activities are happening to not only raise awareness of hunger and homelessness, but also fight it.
On Thursday, November 16, Jessica Sutherland shares lived experiences and how her organization, Homeless to Higher Ed, supports individuals experiencing housing displacement and food insecurity. The talk will be held at North Gym 118 from 2-3:30 p.m.
On Friday, November 17, get a workout while supporting food security in the Fresno State Community! Zumba for a Cause will be held in the lawn in front of the Kennel Bookstore from noon to 1 p.m. There will be free fun, fresh fruit, and a free t-shirt!
