Hunger Awareness Week

Hunger Awareness Week

May 9-15 is Hunger Awareness Week. Sacramento Hunger Coalition and its many partners have a series of events this week to bring to light the problem of hunger in our community. The week kicks off with a second Saturday event at Verge Center for the Arts, 625 S. Street, Sacramento, CA from 5-8 PM. The event will feature photos from the American Academy of Pediatrics, Chapter 1 (Northern California) exhibit: Who’s Hungry as well as photos from Capital Public Radio’s documentary Hidden Hunger. AAP’s photos highlight the fact that you can’t tell by looking who is hungry and who isn’t. Capital Public Radio’s photos depict local individuals who are either experiencing food insecurity or working to address the problem of hunger in our community. Light faire will be served. The Reverse Food Truck will be on hand, open for tours, take donations (monetary or food), sign up volunteers and in general raise awareness. Hope you see everyone there!
