About Hunger Action Month

What is Hunger Action Month:

Hunger Action Month (September) is a nationwide campaign to mobilize the public to take action on the issue of hunger. Organized by Feeding America®, the campaign brings greater attention to the issue of hunger in America and promotes ways for individuals everywhere to get involved with the movement to solve it. Hunger Action Day™, Thursday, September 14th, is a day where nationwide efforts are focused for greater impact.

Who Organizes Hunger Action Month:

Feeding America is a nationwide network of food banks and the largest domestic hunger-relief organization. Inspired by passionate food bank leaders, what began in 2002 as Hunger Action Day grew into a nationwide awareness campaign for the entire month of September in 2008. This year will be the 7th annual Hunger Action Month organized by the Feeding America network and supporters nationwide.

 Why Do We Have Hunger Action Month:

Hunger exists in every county in the country, affecting 49 million Americans including 16 million children. Hunger is a solvable issue and Feeding America is leading the fight to end it.
