Hunger Action Month

Hunger exists in every county in the U.S., affecting 48 million Americans including 15 million children. Community Food Bank believes that hunger IS solvable and we’re leading the fight to end it in our community. We are asking everyone in the Central Valley to take action to fight hunger in their community, all month long.

Whether it’s by advocating and raising awareness, volunteering or donating, you can find the way that’s right for you to make a difference during Hunger Action Month. Together, we can solve hunger. 

See our calendar of events for the Hunger Action Month! Print it out and share it with your family, friends and coworkers! (print on legal-sized paper for best results)

What can’t YOU do on an empty stomach?

Everyone knows that feeling of an empty stomach. The feeling of running on empty is a reality for 48 million people in the U.S. Without that fuel and nutrition, people — kids especially — don’t have the energy to focus, learn, grow, and ultimately, succeed. Tell your friends and family what you can’t do on an empty stomach.

Write it on a plate, take a selfie, and post to your social media channels with #HungerActionMonth. Don’t forget to tag @ComFoodBankCV. It’s that easy to help raise awareness for the 1 in 7 people who struggle with hunger across America.
