Food shouldn’t be an impossible choice.

September is Hunger Action Month

 

For tens of 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. This September, join us for Hunger Action Month by sharing how you will end hunger. Sharing, volunteering, pledging, fundraising, and donating are just a few ways to help end the impossible choices of hunger.

This September, choose to stand against hunger.  We challenge you to start a Food Drive and see how much of an impact you can make on your community!

September 17 is Hunger Action Day

Orange is the color of hunger. This Hunger Action Day, let’s stand together by wearing orange, turning our city landmarks orange, and raising our voices all across the country on behalf of the millions of people facing hunger.

You can make a difference by starting a Food Drive for the Community Food Bank of Central Alabama.
