What is Hunger Action Month?

What is Hunger Action Month?

September 2018

This September Harvest Hope Food Bank, together with the Feeding America nationwide network of food banks, will mobilize across all 50 states in an effort to bring an end to hunger. Hunger Action Month is designed to inspire people to take action and raise awareness of the fact that 41 million Americans, including nearly 13 million children, are food insecure, according to the USDA.

In the 20-county area serviced by Harvest Hope, more than 300,000 people struggle with hunger and may not know where they’ll find their next meal. That number includes one in 5 kids who may not have enough to eat.

September marks the eleventh year the Feeding America network of food banks has organized this annual call to action and the sixth year Harvest Hope has participated in the Hunger Action Month movement. This year the campaign will focus on the strong connections between hunger and health.
