Hunger and Homelessness Awareness

Hunger & Homelessness Awareness is an initiative where people come together across the country to draw attention to problems of hunger and homelessness.  Participating groups spend the week holding a series of education, service, fundraising, and advocacy events.  ACT gathers information from across Appalachian State's campus about different University efforts surrounding hunger and homelessness, and creates a calendar of events to be shared across campus.
