Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week
Did you know in Wood County nearly 15% of people are facing food insecurity? Did you also know that in Wood County nearly 28% of households are living below the poverty line? To bring awareness to this the Office of the Dean of Students wants to educate the BGSU community about issues, needs, and experiences impacting people experiencing homelessness and food insecurity. During the week of November 14-18th there will be multiple events going on around campus that you will be able to attend and engage with to learn more about these issues and resources to support folks impacted by housing and food insecurity.
