September is Hunger Action Month
Did you know 1 in 9 people and 1 in 5 children are food insecure in New Hampshire?
Picture this: In your child’s classroom of twenty, 4 of them are hungry.
September is Hunger Action Month, when Feeding America’s network of food banks unites to urge businesses and individuals to take action in their communities. Orange is the official color of Hunger Action Month.
We ask you to get involved in taking care of our neighbors. Act on behalf of the men, women and children who are food insecure in New Hampshire. It is our opportunity to create a movement throughout September that has a real and lasting impact.
As individuals, charities, businesses and government, we all have a role in getting food and services to those in need. Your donation is the simplest way to help. Every dollar you give provides two meals. It may seem impossible, but with combined purchasing power we are able to acquire food at a significantly lower cost. Other ways to help include: hosting a themed food drive, volunteering to assist with special events at the Food Bank, assist with tending the production garden, and help sort through donations and fresh rescue.
The New Hampshire Food Bank is the only food bank in the state and distributes food annually to more than 400 partner agencies including food pantries, shelters, soup kitchens, children’s programs, senior centers and more.
