Feeding America and food banks around the nation are joining forces to raise awareness about hunger in America this month. Hunger Action Month is all about educating and engaging the public with a variety of fun and rewarding activities. This year, we’re focusing our efforts on bringing new folks in our community to the cause. That’s where you come in, armed with our toolkit and resources available at our website austinfoodbank.org/ham.
Here’s how you can help:
- Hold a Virtual Food Drive to raise meals for Central Texans Facing hunger. Included in your registration will be a tool kit to Hunger Action Month-ify your fundraising.
- Volunteer for a shift at the Food Bank. We’ll have our “Go Orange” photo booth set up for you share your experience on social media in style.
- Join our letter writing campaign. There are many who don’t know that hunger reaches every community in Central Texas. Let’s use the power of media to share the facts. With just a few clicks you can send our letter or personalize your own to your local newspaper.
- Donate a “selfie” with a message about hunger, and tag it with #CAFBTX to spread the word.
With your support we can make September a turning chapter in the fight against hunger.
