Volunteers feed unhoused Madison residents one care package at a time. Volunteering at a church before 8 AM is not how most college students spend their mornings. But for members of the UW-Madison Social Justice Hub, volunteers say it’s how they help deliver hope to the community. “It’s just a really great effort to be able to give back and do something good with my week,” said Hunter Weber, a student volunteer.

Each food bag contains three meals, snacks, towelettes, and two bottles of water.
