This week is National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week.  Held the week before Thanksgiving, this week brings attention to the issue of homelessness and  encourages communities to reach out and take action to help.

Co-sponsored by the National Coalition for the Homeless and the National Student Campaign Against Hunger and Homelessness, the week is full of events around the country meant to engage communities in the fight against homelessness.

If you are interested in getting involved, check out either site for resources and information from your area. The food and beverage industries are involved in a variety of service projects around the country that support community development. It is a surefire way to learn about your neighborhoods and make a difference locally.

We at Sip & Savor suggest taking some time to check out the events this week and perhaps spread the goodwill beyond the holiday season.
