Three Actions, One Goal: Ease Hunger Here

September is Hunger Action Month™—a nationwide campaign designed to inspire people to take action and raise awareness of hunger in the United States.

Food shouldn’t be an impossible choice. For millions of people in America, a daily meal isn’t a choice between different dishes. It’s a choice between food and other crucial needs—like medicine, electricity or childcare. It’s a choice more and more people like Ruby are forced to make locally.

After working for 43 years, most recently as a court-appointed advocate for children, she finds that, with inflation, groceries can eat up a lot of her budget as a retiree.

“You’ve got to either pay your bills or groceries,” she said. “But you need both.”

You play a critical role in ensuring our neighbors have enough to eat. This September you can help by donating, volunteering, speaking out against hunger. Below are some easy ways to get involved today.
