Hunger Action Month: 6 Ways to Get Involved

September is Hunger Action Month, so we put this list together to help you decide how to get involved. It’s never too late to start making a difference!

6 Ways to Get Involved in Hunger Action Month

1. Organize a food and/or fund drive. Whether you do it at work or at church, with a civic group or with your family, running a drive can be fun and rewarding experience. 

2. Talk to friends about hunger in your community. Sometimes a conversation can be the easiest way to raise awareness.

3. Become a volunteer. Contributing a few hours of time per week is one of the best ways to learn about hunger in your community and how food banks like us are working to end it every day.

4. Give your first gift as a monthly donor. Even as little as $10 a month can make a big difference.

5. Write a letter to the editor of the newspaper, city council, state representatives, etc. Let your voice be heard!

6. Take the “food stamp challenge.” Try to live on what a family of the same size would receive in SNAP benefits for one week. You can talk, blog, tweet, and share your experience with others.
