Join Feeding America and Take Action During Hunger Action Month
By America's Charities on September 2, 2022
No one should have to go hungry in the richest country in the world — yet millions of Americans don't have enough to eat. Our nation's children, seniors, veterans and active U.S. service members should never have to worry where their next meal will come from.
If we work together, we have the power to set things right.
In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, unemployment and food insecurity soared. In 2021, 53 million people turned to food banks and community programs for help putting food on the table. The increase of inflation, along with rising food and gas prices this past year have only exacerbated this problem, putting a pinch on families all across the country.
This September, we can all do our part to end hunger - one helping at a time. With every action, we get one step closer to making hunger in America a thing of the past. It all starts with you!
