September is Hunger Action Month, and it’s just around the corner. That means FeedingAmerica will be asking everyone to Speak Out Against Hunger™. All throughout September, Feeding America will be giving you ways you can help raise awareness of hunger in America—both online and in your community.
Also in September, your Members of Congress will be heading back to Washington to get back to work. This is a great opportunity to let them know about Hunger Action Month and encourage them to pass a strong Farm Bill that invests in programs that help Americans struggling with hunger.
What you can do
Please consider sending a quick note to your Members of Congress letting them know September is Hunger Action Month, and that a great way to show their recognition would be to pass a Farm Bill that protects and strengthens our nation’s hunger relief programs.
Send your note to Congress now!
As you know, the federal government plays a big role in helping us work toward a hunger-free America. That’s why it’s so critical that we help Congress understand the importance that programs like SNAP, TEFAP, and CSFP have in helping hungry Americans put food on the table. Will you help us by sending a quick note today?
Be sure to check back on the Hunger Action Center during the month of September for more ways you can get involved and help us Speak Out Against Hunger™—including the return of our paper plate program, Go Orange Day, and much more. Also, every Friday during Hunger Action Month will be a Hunger Action Friday, so Hunger Advocates like you will have several opportunities to get involved.
