CONWAY, Ark. - National Hunger and Homeless Awareness week is held each year the week before Thanksgiving. This year, the Bethlehem House is partnering with local churches to bring that awareness to a community level through its annual Empty Bowls event.

“Many children and adults go to bed hungry each night, across the world and across the street,” Bethlehem House Executive Director Judi Lively said. “This year, we are inviting churches throughout Faulkner County to join this fight by hosting their own Empty Bowls event for their congregation.”

The proceeds of these events will be used to support the work of Bethlehem House. 

Bethlehem House has as its mission to improve the life situations of the homeless and nearly homeless in the community. In addition to offering a home for the homeless, the shelter provides an evening meal daily and operates a food pantry to serve the needs of those who do not have adequate resources for food.

“Thanksgiving is a time we think about what we are thankful for, a perfect time to share compassion with our neighbors who are experiencing hunger and homelessness,” said Lively.
