September is Hunger Action Month. Learn how you can get involved in the fight against hunger!
The fact that you’re reading this means you want to end hunger in our community. When it’s estimated that 1 in 8 Middle and West Tennesseans are facing hunger during the pandemic, it’s hard to know where to start.
Don’t get overwhelmed by the problem.
Become a part of the solution and join us in celebrating Hunger Action Month!
For the month of September, we’re uniting with our Feeding America network of food banks to bring awareness to food insecurity and urge individuals to take action in the fight against hunger.
Here’s how you can get involved and bring us one step closer to a hunger free Tennessee:
Orange is the symbolic color of hunger relief, and when you Go Orange, you let your friends, family, and coworkers know that you’re joining us in the fight against hunger!
Show your support by wearing all orange, or even dressing up your pet up in orange!
Food banks can’t fight hunger alone.
We all have a stake in using our voice to ensure our neighbors have enough to eat. Through actions big and small, we all can take steps to move the needle on hunger.
This includes advocating for the strengthening of federal, state, and local programs that help our neighbors access the food they need. SNAP (the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), formerly known as “Food Stamps,” is one of those vital programs.
Whether it’s online or in person, tell your friends and family why ending hunger is important to you. Need some inspiration?
You can also become an official Hunger Action Month Social Media Ambassador.
