Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week Returns For Its 3rd Year

It takes all of us to end hunger and homelessness. That’s why, from November 13 to 17, the community is invited to join Father Joe’s Villages for Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week, an annual recognition where everyone can support critical actions to end food and housing insecurity across the region.

Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week

Starting Monday, Nov. 13, the San Diego community is invited to take action during the week-long awareness campaign with five core actions including educational, advocacy, participation, donation and direct action events.

Here is the schedule of activities:

  • On Tuesday, Nov. 14, Father Joe’s Villages staff members and volunteers will build and distribute meal packages to those in need at the Emergency Food Pantry
  • On Thursday, Nov. 16, Father Joe’s Villages’ Street Health team visits with patients as a food truck delivers warm meals.

5 Calls To Action

The San Diego community can take five actions against food and housing insecurity this Hunger & Homelessness Awareness week:

  • Educate: Share a post to tell your friends and neighbors about the effects of food insecurity and homelessness.
  • Advocate: Take a stand in your community against hunger and homelessness by joining the Father Joe’s Villages Neighbors Helping Neighbors supporters or by writing a letter to your local official.
  • Participate: Take part in the Thanksgiving Day 5K. On Wednesday, Nov. 15, enjoy a limited time 15% discount with promo code HHAW23. Stretch your impact even further by thrifting at Father Joe’s Villages’ retail locations or at the new online store.
  • Donate: To support food and housing programs at Father Joe’s Villages, the community is invited to give a gift.
  • Activate: Take action by giving your time at your local food pantry or shelter.

Why help

According to the San Diego Hunger Coalition’s Hunger in San Diego report, nearly one in four San Diego County residents experienced nutrition insecurity this year. 10,264 of our neighbors experienced homelessness in this year’s Point in Time Count report by the San Diego Regional Task Force on Homelessness.

When people experience both hunger and homelessness, these combined stresses can lead to short- and long-term health issues that make it even more difficult for people to end their homelessness.

Along with providing meals and shelter, discussion and awareness makes it possible for organizations like Father Joe’s Villages to move the region one step closer to ending hunger and homelessness for good through on-the-ground and long-term action. This year, Father Joe’s Villages helped 333 people find permanent homes and fed over 675,000 people with daily hot meals and care packages. Find details here.
