September is Hunger Action Month

Hello Flash-Foodies, it’s that time of year again, and Feeding America, the nation’s leading hunger relief charity, is back in action leading the fight against hunger in the United States. As you all know, hunger is serious problem in America. Check out this video as a reminder of the struggles that millions of America’s families face:

Although this video is a bit of a downer, there are a lot of ways that you can help take action against hunger this month.

Visit the Hunger Action Month site to find your nearest food bank, make a pledge, or share facts about hunger on social media.

It can be hard for most people to break away from busy schedules to volunteer or afford monetary donations. Here are some other ways you can help the cause:

  • Share a hunger fact with your friend
  • Show your support for Feeding America on Facebook and Twitter
  • Wear orange Thursday Sept. 6 (and the rest of the month!)
  • Here is a list of more ways you can help!

What creative ways are you fighting hunger this month? Post a comment and let us know!
