SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Mayor Domenic Sarno will join organizers from Friends of the Homeless along with volunteers to serve lunch in honor of National Hunger and Homelessness Week.

National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week is held each year the week before Thanksgiving.

The week long awareness was established to provide residents an opportunity to share compassion with neighbors who are experiencing hunger and homelessness.

The goal is to work towards a world where no one has to experience hunger and homelessness.

Sarno will be at Friends of the Homeless at 12 p.m. on Monday to serve lunch.
