September is Hunger Action Month


September is Hunger Action Month!  Join AAFB, Feeding America, our member food banks on National Food Bank Day, and anti-hunger friends and advocates from around the country to take action raising awareness and fighting hunger! Here is what you can do to help us raise awareness this month:
  • Feeding America has launched their Hunger Action Month site filled with ideas, including quick links to send advocacy messages to your elected representatives.
  • Ready for #HungerActionMonth?  Help us raise awareness about hunger by posting your "Paper Plate Picture!" Grab a paper plate and let us know what you can’t do on an empty stomach (ex. “keep up with my kids,” “get my college degree”)  We want to see them - share them with us on Facebook and Twitter
