DOVE Food Drive

Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week

"Wherever people are suffering, wherever they are humiliated by poverty or injustice, and wherever a mockery is made of their rights, make it your task to serve them." St. John Paul II

In the United States alone, 40 million Americans are food insecure and 1 in 6 children face hunger each day. As COVID 19 continues to adversely affect our economy this number is expected to rise significantly.

DOVE is asking our Seton Hall community to consider responding to the very real threat of hunger faced by so many in our community. Each week throughout our Hunger and Homelessness Awareness efforts, we will distribute your donations directly to the organizations served by DOVE. 

Organizations include:

In addition, this drive will benefit anyone our own Seton Hall community who is experiencing food insecurity. 

Please submit your donations by Tuesday, November 24, to the DOVE Office in Boland Hall.
