Hunger Action Month

Take Action: September is Hunger Action Month!

Hunger Action Month is an opportunity for community members, businesses, civic organizations, elected officials, and congregations to get involved and take action in their local communities to help end hunger. What can you do? Whether it’s by advocating and raising awareness, making donations, or volunteering, you can find a way that’s right for you.

This year’s theme is “Food Shouldn’t Be An Impossible Choice.” Millions everyday are forced to choose between food and electricity, food and medicine, food and childcare…and should not have to. Check out, like and share our social media posts; add the Hunger Action Month frame to your FB status photo; and keep an eye out for Feeding America’s TV spots airing on WETM 18. Thank you for supporting your community!
