WVU Students come together for Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week

MONONGALIA COUNTY, W.Va. (WDTV)-- The VISTA Collaborative at WVU partnered with WVU Food Justice Lab and WV FOODLINK for Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week on Monday.

They had a workshop to discuss barriers and strategies to improve food options on campus at the Mountainlair.

The workshop will continue on Thursday from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Throughout the week, the organization will host a fundraiser and a benefit concert to raise funds to go toward the cause.

Cecily Flight, a VISTA leader, said it's good to consider issues like this and ways to better a community.

"There are just a range of issues that other people are dealing with," Flight said. "And to be aware of those things I think makes us better people at the end of the day."
