Hunger Action Month
FOOD SHOULDN’T BE AN IMPOSSIBLE CHOICE.
More than 430,000* people in the Missouri- Illinois bi-state region face hunger — that’s 1 out of every 6 people in our community. For many, a daily meal poses a tough choice: a meal or electricity, a meal or medication, a meal or rent. (*Feeding America ‘Map the Meal Gap’ March 2021)
September is Hunger Action Month. This is the time to raise awareness about an issue that’s all too common in our community despite living in a world that has more than enough to feed everyone. We want to inspire people to take action and help those that are facing the impossible choices of hunger. We also want to let those who are experiencing hunger know that help and hope is out there.
Here are a few simple ways you can join the St. Louis Area Foodbank to take action this September and help solve hunger.
