September is Hunger Action Month, a nationwide campaign that encourages the country to take action on the issue of hunger. Organized by Feeding America®, the campaign brings greater attention to the issue and promotes ways for you to get involved with the movement to solve it. Here are a few ways that you can help:

  • Volunteer at the Freestore Foodbank.
  • Make a monetary donation.
  • Have a “brown bag lunch” at the office: Ask co-workers to bring brown bag lunches, and then donate the saved money to the Freestore Foodbank.
  • Wear orange on Hunger Action Day – Thursday, September 14 – to help raise awareness about hunger.
  • “Like” the Freestore Foodbank on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.
  • What can’t you do on an empty stomach? Share a plate photo with #HungerActionMonth to raise awareness
  • Write a letter to your elected officials about hunger.
  • Take the SNAP challenge. Live a day or a week on a “food stamp budget.” Share your experience on Facebook, Twitter, or a blog.
