September is Hunger Action Month

Mmm.  Watermelon!
Mmm. Watermelon!

Nearly 49 million people in America face hunger. That is 1 in 6 of the U.S. population – including more than 1 in 5 children. In Oregon, nearly 1 in 5 face food insecurity  with 33% of those being children.

Don’t let their struggles go unheard. Join Oregon Food Bank and speak out against hunger.  

30 ways in 30 days to fight hunger

Volunteer. Become a monthly sustainer. Donate produce from your garden. Read a book about hunger. Register to vote. Skip a meal and donate funds. Host a hunger banquet in your home. Tell your hunger story. Tweet.

Those are just a few of the many ways you can take action to fight hunger during September’s Hunger Action Month.

“We encourage everyone to get involved in fighting hunger during this nationwide campaign,” says Laura Golino de Lovato, director of development, marketing and communications at Oregon Food Bank. “We’ve posted 30 doable ways to take action. Are you a writer? An organizer? An advocate? A donor? A doer? Pick your way to help based on your talent and interest. There’s something for everyone."

“No matter how you choose to help, your pledge makes a big difference,” says Golino de Lovato.

Oregon Food Bank distributes donated food throughout a statewide network of 20 regional food bank serving more than 923 nonprofit, hunger-relief agencies throughout Oregon and Clark County, Wash., and works to eliminate the root causes of hunger through nutrition and garden education, advocacy and community food security work.

Together we are making a difference!  Thank you.
