Hunger Action Month

September is Hunger Action Month!

Together We Can Solve Hunger™

Hunger Action Month is your opportunity to join a movement that has a real and lasting impact on our effort to feed more North Carolinians than ever before. Whether it’s by advocating and raising awareness, making donations, or volunteering, you can find the way that’s right for you to make a difference during Hunger Action Month. Together, we can solve hunger.

Each voice counts. Every action matters. And with nearly 650,000 food insecure individuals in our 34 county service area alone, it matters more than ever before.

Here's how you can take Hunger Action this month:
