Hunger Action Month

Hunger Action Month

Hunger Action Month,  recognized by Feeding America and food banks across the country every September, is the perfect time to renew your commitment to fighting hunger (or make a new one!). The goal of this month-long campaign is to raise awareness of hunger in our country and promote ways for individuals everywhere to get involved in the effort to fight it.

We want YOU to join us for Hunger Action Month 2023!

This September, we invite you to learn more about the issue of hunger in our community, as well as share your support for and get more involved with the Food Bank’s mission. Check out our suggestions below for how you can take action and make a real difference to help your neighbors.

Make sure to subscribe to our email list if you aren’t already, and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, or Instagram to stay in the know!


Take action NOW and tell your members of Congress to come together to provide support for those facing hunger and strengthen critical anti-hunger programs like SNAP in the 2023 Farm Bill. This includes:

  • Protecting SNAP's purchasing power so benefits align with grocery prices and provide adequate support during tough economic times.
  • Streamlining SNAP eligibility and enrollment processes to improve access.
  • Improving SNAP access for older adults, college students, and others who do not qualify for or cannot participate in SNAP due to eligibility and enrollment barriers.
  • Helping more military families access SNAP benefits by excluding the Basic Allowance for Housing from the gross income calculation for SNAP eligibility.
  • Protecting SNAP choice and focusing on ensuring affordable access to nutritious foods.
  • Adequately funding and improving state employment and training programs.
  • Ensuring people receiving SNAP benefits can access training opportunities that align with best practices.
  • Removing the time limit on SNAP benefits to support participants as they find work.

Don’t forget to GO ORANGE for Hunger Action Day on Friday, September 15! Snap a pic and share your support on social media using the #HungerActionMonth & #WeFeedCLE hashtags!

We also invite you to join the Food Bank’s Advocacy Network. You’ll get alerts when we need you to raise your voice and help us reach out to legislators about the importance of hunger relief programs.
