Hunger and Poverty Awareness is a community of PC students committed to addressing issues of local and global poverty, and hunger through direct service, advocacy, and education. The group’s work is driven by solidarity with those served, faith, and building relationships within the ministry.

Volunteers engage in numerous weekly service opportunities at Providence meal sites as well as delivering furniture with My Brothers Keeper, helping to eliminate food waste with Friar Food Rescue, and tackle the throw-away-culture while addressing needs on campus with Lightening Others Loads

Hunger and Poverty Awareness also coordinates different events throughout the school year. Past events have included the Oxfam Hunger Banquet, the 30 Hour Fast, and Rock Against Hunger. We always looking for new participants to either volunteer off campus or help out with the on-campus events.
