Homelessness is Inextricably Connected to Hunger

Homelessness is inextricably connected to hunger. Families and youth stay hungry in order to stay housed; they eat less in order to pay rent. Once homeless, finding food or accessing meals becomes much more challenging. Moving from place to place, not having transportation or cooking facilities (or even a can opener) are all real barriers. Families and youth who stay with other people eat less, or not at all, in order not to get kicked out.
