Support Our Community by Taking Action this September

Hunger Action Month is a nationwide initiative to raise awareness of hunger and encourage people to take action towards supporting those facing hunger and address the systemic inequities that can lead to someone being food insecure. 

There are a variety of ways people can take action to support those facing hunger. Financial gifts, gifts of time volunteering and sharing information about hunger, its causes, and the ways to address it in person or via social media are just a few of the ways people can take action.  

Everyone deserves to have access to enough nutritious food to thrive. This September let’s take action towards making that vision a reality.
