BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) -- Some Western Kentucky University students are taking time this week to make others aware of hunger and homelessness.

Student Ambassadors of Service from the WKU ALIVE Center, which works to create campus and community partnerships, have activities starting Monday to spread the word during National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week.

Events include a shantytown, volunteer service, informational tables, homeless simulation, hunger banquet and hunger walk.

The university says during the hunger banquet, participants will be learning about world poverty issues and eating meals representing the part of the world they've been randomly assigned.

Donations of non-perishable food or hygiene products will be accepted at the banquet for the WKU Food Pantry.
