Hunger Action Month takes place annually in the month of September. It is a nationwide initiative of the Feeding America network of food banks to educate the public about hunger relief and encourage our community to take action in the fight against hunger.
Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee has identified at least one way each day of the month of September you can get involved! All actions are intended to raise awareness, food and funds.
Hunger affects more than 1 in 8 Americans - that's over 49 million people in communities all over the country just like ours. It's a big problem and each year we are seeing more and more people in need of food assistance.
