VOLUNTEER. DONATE. EDUCATE.
Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week is a project of the National Student Campaign Against Hunger and Homelessness and the National Coalition for the Homeless.
Every person deserves to live without worrying whether they’ll have food on their plate or a roof over their head. But instead, far too many people are forced to make hard choices between paying for food, housing, and other critical expenses.
Our mission is to help homeless, poor, and disabled people achieve health and self-sufficiency, and to fight against the root causes of poverty and homelessness. BOSS Bay Area is raising funds for our Encampment & Community Outreach Food Run: Our goal is to raise $1,000 during the month of November in honor of Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week. You can help lend a hand to those in immediate need, while also supporting meaningful long-term solutions.

“Each night, tens of millions of our fellow Americans go to bed hungry. That’s just plain wrong,” McGovern said. “What we lack isn’t food or resources; we lack the political will and moral courage to act. The COVID pandemic showed that hunger isn’t just a problem for someone else. It’s something anyone can struggle with in the blink of an eye.” BOSS Bay Area is reigniting the conversation centering hunger and homelessness as we approach #HHAW.
Join us for in-person and virtual events throughout the month of November highlighting community organizers, documentarians, political leaders and more as we come together to create modern solutions for our communities to have access to shelter and nutritious food.
