September is Hunger Action Month

Advocate. Educate. Volunteer. Donate.

This September the Arkansas Foodbank, together with the Feeding America nationwide network of food banks, will mobilize across all 50 states in an effort to bring an end to hunger. Hunger Action Month is designed to inspire people to take action and raise awareness of the fact that 48 million Americans, including 15 million children, are food insecure, according to the USDA.

In Central and Southern Arkansas, more than 287,000 people struggle with hunger and may not know where they’ll find their next meal. That number includes one in FOUR kids and seniors who may not have enough to eat.

How to Participate
