UCI Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week
Anteaters Take Action!
Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week
November 13-21, 2021
A collaboration of campus units, student groups, and community organizations, Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week (HHAW) marks the next step in UCI’s efforts to support the needs of its students, faculty, staff, and community. Part of a nation-wide initiative, the week-long series of events, displays, and outreach aims to raise consciousness of the resources available and ways in which the UCI community can get involved.
Compounded with the challenges of an unprecedented year, the issues of hunger and homelessness remain pressing for our students, colleagues, neighbors, and wider community.
