As we move into November, we begin to prepare ourselves for the Thanksgiving season. During this time, we begin to make plans for the holiday where we gather with family and friends and feast together in celebration of gratitude and harmony.
However, during this time, others are not as fortunate. In Illinois, we have a staggering homeless population with over 10,000 individuals experiencing homelessness as of 2020. And it doesn’t stop there, as there are more people who may not be homeless but experience hunger as a result of poverty.
For this reason, it's important to become involved during Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week. Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week spans from November 11-18, the week before Thanksgiving. During this time, people come together to spread awareness about hunger and homelessness and give back to their communities.
The week is dedicated to doing what we can to help alleviate the burdens that come with the struggle of homelessness and hunger in today's society. With around 795 million people not having enough to eat worldwide, this problem takes a great amount of effort to create changes for the better.
We believe each and every individual deserves a meal on their plate and a roof over their heads. As the month continues to progress, we encourage you to take action to help bring an end to the problem of hunger and homelessness.
November marks the month of giving. This November consider reaching out to your local food bank to donate or take part in a food drive. Be kind to others and lend a hand to those in need. If you’d like to get involved within your community or find out other ways to help this coming week, visit Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week to learn more.
