This September the Second Harvest North Central Food Bank, together with the Feeding America nationwide network of food banks, will mobilize across all 50 states in an effort to bring an end to hunger. Hunger Action Month (HAM) is designed to inspire people to take action and raise awareness of the fact that 48 million Americans, including 15 million children, are food insecure, according to the USDA. Hunger Action Day®, Thursday, September 13, 2018, is a day where efforts across the country are focused for greater impact.
To show help show impact in our region, for the whole month of September, especially on September 13th, Second Harvest is asking supporters to do one of two things and post it to their social media:
- Share what you couldn’t do without adequate nutrition by writing on an empty plate, “On an empty stomach I can’t ______,” and filling in the blank with something you couldn’t achieve without the nutrition we need to thrive.
- Individually or as a group wear orange on September 13th, take a photo and share.
- Share, like and/or comment on others posts regarding HAM to help increase the reach.
