Hunger Action Month (September)

Hunger Action Month Calendar

More than 40 million people in the United States today are hungry or food insecure. Yet in this country, we will throw away over 133 billion pounds of good food this year. As people of faith, it is time for us to take action—to say that this situation is unacceptable and to do something about it.

Plan now to make September 2017 a time for your congregation to stand together against hunger, joining with the Society of St. Andrew to see that each person in this country has healthy, nourishing food to eat.

Hunger Action Month Resources

The Daily Calendar for Prayer and Action includes a scripture reading and related activity for each day of September. Using this calendar, your congregants will take direct action against hunger and give money that, through the Society of St. Andrew, will be used to put nourishing fruits and vegetables on the tables of our hungry brothers and sisters right here in the U.S.
