Hunger Action Month

DATE September 1, 2011LEAVE A COMMENT

1 in 8. That’s the number of Americans who will struggle with hunger today.

But equally striking is the number of meals YOU can provide with even a small donation: 3 for every dollar.

Throughout Hunger Action Month, Feeding America’s nationwide network of 205 food banks are calling upon their communities to take action by giving up something small through the “Give A Little, Feed a Lot” campaign.  By identifying small things in life, a person can see what the value of that item would translate into meals and can then donate the value to their local food bank.  Americans are encouraged to participate in the month by attending local food banks events, donating time, money or their voice, participating in one of many corporate promotions and getting children involved as “Hunger Helpers.”  For more information go to
