Experience and Empathy

Posted on: December 10th, 2014

Rachel Kelso (’17), Hunger Week Team Member, Loyola 4 Chicago Leader,  and ISN Media Team Member.

As a Loyola student, I got involved with Hunger Week after attending some of the various events at last year’s 40th Anniversary Hunger Week. Through being a planning team member, I have expanded my knowledge base immensely about hunger locally, nationally, and worldwide. This year, a fellow team member and I decided to partake in the SNAP challenge. For this, we had to live off the equivalent of SNAP benefits for the duration of Hunger Week. This was easily the most challenging week of my life in terms of hunger.
