Hunger Action Month
WHAT IS HUNGER ACTION MONTH?
September is Hunger Action Month, when the Feeding America network of more than 200 food banks unite to urge individuals to take action in their communities. How can you help? It’s easy. We’re asking you to simply Speak Out Against Hunger™ this September.
Why speak out? Because 1 out of every 4 people in the Foodbank of Southeastern's Virgina service area struggles with hunger and often does so in silence. They live in our community; they are our neighbors, our co-workers, and our friends, yet their struggles can go unheard. By simply lending your voice, you can make a tangible contribution to mobilizing the public in the fight to end hunger.
SPEAK OUT AGAINST HUNGER™
Here are a few ideas to get started, but please see the toolkit of resources below for many more...
Find the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and ‘like’ us on Facebook Follow us on Twitter too!
Go Orange on September 6 and throughout the rest of the month - see the Go Orange document below.
Share a hunger fact with your social network.
Organize a food and fund drive to help the Foodbank meet the growing need for food.
