September is Hunger Action Month
Hunger Action Month is a 30-day event, each year, where people just like you, join together in the mission to end hunger. It’s typically held in September and is fast growing as a national event.
Some people participate by following the Hunger Action Month Calendar, others volunteer to serve at some point in September to be a hands-on part of the mission to end hunger, and others host an event during the month to raise awareness of the problem and the mission.
How will you choose to participate in Hunger Action Month?
The mission to end hunger is critical. More than 40 million people in the United States today are hungry or food insecure. And yet, in this country, we will throw away over 133 billion pounds of good food this year. As a people of faith, it is time for us to take action—to say that this situation is unacceptable and we will do something about it.
Plan now to make September 2019 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.
We want to help you make a difference in your local community and have several resources available for you to use at no cost. (Please feel free to make copies of any materials you download.)
We would be delighted to come share about the mission to end hunger and some ways your congregation can be involved and make a difference in the local community. Call or email today to schedule a visit or Skype conversation with a Society of St. Andrew staffer during National Hunger Action Month or you can request a speaker for your event from our online request page.
Let’s work together to end hunger!
