September is Hunger Action Month


September is Hunger Action Month!  Join AAFB, Feeding America, our member food banks, and anti-hunger friends and advocates from around the country to take action raising awareness and fighting hunger!  Many more events are still forthcoming, but here is a sample of what you can expect:
  • Feeding America has launched their Hunger Action Month site filled with ideas, including quick links to send advocacy messages to your elected representatives and to take a pledge to end hunger.
  • Bring awareness to Hunger by wearing Orange in Go Orange Day on Thursday, September 3rd! 
  • Ready for #Spoontember?  Help us raise awareness about hunger by posting your "Spoon Selfie" - an image of you balancing a spoon on your nose – along with hunger-related statistics!  We want to see them - share them with us on Facebook and Twitter.
  • Check out the Chase Tower in downtown Phoenix - Arizona's tallest building - which will glow orange starting during the evening every Wednesday evening for the entire month!
  • Each of our five member food banks have tons of cool events lined up all month long:
