September is Hunger Action Month


September is Hunger Action Month!  Join AAFB, our member food banks, and anti-hunger friends and advocates from around the country to take action raising awareness and fighting hunger!  Here are just a few ways you can get involved:
  • Wear orange for Go Orange Day on Thursday, September 5!  Or change your Facebook and Twitter profile photos orange on September 5 too!  Be sure to take photos of you Going Orange and share them with us on Facebook and Twitter.  Additionally, check out the Chase Tower in downtown Phoenix, which will glow orange every Thursday evening all month long!

  • Learn what it’s like to live on a SNAP (Food Stamp) budget by participating in a SNAP Challenge from September 3-9.  During that week, limit your total food purchases to the weekly budget of a typical SNAP recipient, which is just $29!  Click the link for more details and registration information.  For those of you in and around Tucson, Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona is also hosting a SNAP Challenge too.
  • Each of our five member food banks have tons of cool activities and events lined up all month long:
