September is #HungerActionMonth — a nationwide initiative designed to inspire people to take action and raise awareness to help people experiencing the impossible choices of hunger. All month, people across the country will be taking action against hunger to help families faced with impossible choices, like buying groceries or paying rent. You can too!
This September, we’re asking those who are able to come together to provide the consistency and trust needed by the people we serve by becoming a monthly sustaining donor. In fact, this September, a Leadership Donor is matching your first month’s sustaining gift — up to $5,000!
For nearly 600,000 people in the Food Bank’s service area, a daily meal isn’t a choice between different dishes. It’s a choice between food and other crucial needs—like medicine, electricity, or childcare. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 health and economic crisis, people are finding themselves in urgent need of hunger relief services. The food pantries and soup kitchens the Food Bank partners with, and the federal nutrition programs the Food Bank helps connect people with have all seen staggering increases in the number of people needing support.
As a monthly donor, you’ll know you are making a difference each and every day — ensuring that we can be more resilient together. Ending hunger takes all of us working together, and we’re grateful to everyone who believes in our #NoOneGoesHungry vision. We could never do this important work alone!
