September is Hunger Action Month



September is Hunger Action Month a time to raise awareness about hunger in every community we serve. It is a time to Advocate, Donate and Volunteer!

Tours of our facility, 1919 E Douglas, will be offered all month long. This is a great way to see how we help provide over 12 million meals a year to our hungry neighbors across our 85 county service area.

We are also encouraging everyone to stop by, just for a few minutes and take a photo with our Hunger Action Month Plate. Then share that photo on your social media with #HungerActionMonth. You have the opportunity to write on the plate about what you can’t do on an empty stomach:
