Event designed to bring awareness to hunger and homeless in Eau Claire


Eau Claire (WQOW) - Here's a snapshot of the local fight against hunger and homelessness.  There are 50 different agencies involved. Next week is National Hunger and Homeless Awareness week. On Monday, community members are invited to come learn more how local agencies address the problem. 

"Our homeless aren't walking around on the streets with shopping carts, and begging for money, you really don't see that very often here because we do have so much help from these agencies that work so hard," says Kristina Malec, who works at the Sojourner House.

The event begins at the community table in Eau Claire at 11:30 a.m. Monday.
