Hunger Awareness Week at Sacramento City College seeks to bring awareness to food-insecure students on campus. Not only will we be providing free perishable and non-perishable food items throughout the week, but we will also have organizations providing their services to students in an attempt to connect as many students with the resources that they need. By hosting a Hunger Awareness Week, our hope is that the stigma surrounding food insecurity will diminish. My work with the Food Insecurity Committee also seeks to establish a food pantry on campus by the fall of 2021. Overall, Hunger Awareness Week and the eventual implementation of a food pantry on campus are the foundations that will be necessary to tackle the larger issue of food insecurity at Sacramento City College.
