What You Can Do During Hunger Action Month This Year
Though it may be surprising, today in the United States, more than 38 million people face food insecurity. (That’s about 11% of the US population). This includes 12 million children facing hunger, which means “1 in 6 children in America worry about their next meal.” The pandemic has only worsened these challenges, and many families have been forced to make an impossible choice between food or needed medicines and other essentials.
Because of this, thousands of hard-working volunteers in the Feeding America network are striving to provide hunger relief.
September is Hunger Action Month, and while hunger in America may feel like an overwhelming challenge, there are several actions you can take to help your community members.
