Interfaith teen program for Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week

To raise awareness about the problem of hunger in the region, the Community Against Poverty (CAP) Coalition is partnering with Operation Food Search and Ladue Chapel Presbyterian Church on a teen education and action program called “Hunger Speaks” from 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 15 at Ladue Chapel, 9450 Clayton Rd. The program is free and open to teens in grades 6-12. CAP is a program of the Bohm Social Justice Initiative at the Jewish Community Relations Council of St. Louis (JCRC). 

The program will include a presentation and a follow up dialogue session run by Judith Coyman of Operation Food Search, a member agency of the CAP Hunger Task Force. There will be a call to action to conclude the program. This event coincides with National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, which runs from Nov. 14 to 22.   For more information and to RSVP, contact Gail Wechsler, Director of Domestic Issues/Social Justice at the JCRC, at 314-442-3894 or [email protected].
