Explain Hunger Action Month...

September is Hunger Action Month, when we ask everyone in America to take action to fight hunger in their community, all month long. Hunger Action Month is your opportunity to join a movement that has a real and lasting impact on our effort to feed more Americans than ever before. Whether it’s by advocating and raising awareness, making donations, or volunteering, individuals can find the way that’s right for them to make a difference during Hunger Action Month. Join us this September for Hunger Action Month because, Together We Can Solve Hunger™. 

Help spread the message! 


Take Action Online:

  • TURN ORANGE FOR HUNGER RELIEF™ by making your Facebook and Twitter profiles orange on Hunger Action Day, Thursday, September 4th. 
  • DONATE your status and share your local hunger statistics on Facebook and Twitter.
  • LIKE & FOLLOW the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and Feeding America on social media.
  • PLEDGE your support for the more than 1 in 5 kids in the United States who face hunger by sending an email to your Congressional Representative using Feeding America's easy to use form.   
  • INVITE your Member of Congress to visit a child feeding program here at the Foodbank. Congressional visits shine a spotlight on the role food banks play in solving child hunger.
