Hunger Action Month (September) is the Feeding America® network’s nationwide awareness campaign designed to mobilize the public to take action on the issue of hunger. The campaign brings attention to the reality of food insecurity in the United States and promotes ways for individuals across the U.S. to get involved in the movement to help end hunger.
Hunger Action Day™, which is the first Thursday in September, (this year it will be September 3), is a day where efforts across the country are focused for greater impact. Hunger exists in every county in the U.S., affecting 49 million Americans including 16 million children. The Feeding America network believes that hunger IS solvable and we’re leading the fight to end it. You can help by mobilizing your community through any of the actions below. As individuals, charities, businesses and government, we all have a role to play in getting food to our neighbors in need.
