Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Day Every year in the fall, HHI hosts a Day of Dialogue on relevant topics to our community. In 2014, we started the conversation about A Healthy Start: Breastfeeding in Emergency Housing – Implications for Policy and Practice. Staff from shelters and the city, nurses, insurance representatives, and mothers currently in shelters came together to discuss creating a more breastfeeding-friendly environment in shelters for mothers with infants. HHI hopes that this Day of Dialogue will be a beginning for all its partners to further discuss and change the shelter environment to better encourage and accommodate mothers who want to breastfeed their babies.
