Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week 2023

Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week 2023

Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week is an annual event where people nationwide come together to draw attention to the problems of hunger and homelessness.

Here at Pongo, we know that housing and food insecurity are immense sources of trauma, and that through poetry, young people are able to express the pain and instability of such experiences. “Kayla’s” moving poem, excerpted above, is an excellent example of how young people use poetry to make sense of the pain they’ve had to endure.

We encourage you to check out featured opportunities from the National Coalition for the Homeless and the National Student Campaign Against Hunger and Homelessness get involved in the fight to end hunger and homelessness!
