Hunger Action Month


What Is Hunger Action Month?    

September is Hunger Action Month, join Second Harvest along with Feeding America and the nationwide network of food banks to unite and take action in our communities. This annual month-long campaign brings attention to the reality of food insecurity in the United States and promotes ways for individuals across the U.S. to get involved in the movement to help end hunger. By taking action online and in your community, you can be a part of the solution to end hunger nationwide. 

What Actions Can I Take to Make a Difference?

The 2019 campaign theme will be "We can end hunger one helping at a time."

Feeding America and Second Harvest is asking everyone to take action during Hunger Action Month. This September, we're seeking 40,000 actions from the public – a donation, a volunteer shift, a social media post – ac​tions that will help end hunger, one helping at a time.

Here are a few ways you can help:
