Hunger Action Month

September is Hunger Action Month!

Together, We Can Solve Hunger™

24 Hour Telethon Triple EventSeptember is Hunger Action Month across the country, and as a member of Feeding America's nationwide network of food banks, we're asking you to support the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina by taking action to raise awareness about the problem of hunger in our service area.

With more than 560,000 individuals in central and eastern North Carolina living at or below the poverty line, and an additional 500,000 just on the edge of needing our services, it’s more important now than ever before.

No action is too small when it comes to solving hunger! Orange is the color of Hunger Action Month, so Go Orange!  Wear orange or go orange via social media. Join us for the 24-Hour LIVE Warehouse Telethon on September 13-14.  Print the 30 Ways in 30 Days Calendar.

Help support the over 560,000 individuals who are suffering from hunger in our 34 county service area.  Participate in Hunger Action Month! Together, we can solve hunger!
