Hunger Action Month Begins!!

Join anti-hunger advocates across the country to raise awareness of the 49 million people in the US facing hunger by taking part in Hunger Action Month and help end hunger in our community and beyond!

While you’re getting back into the swing of things following the holiday weekend,
don’t forget that Hunger Action Month has officially begun. Everyone can rally
for hunger relief by doing these simple tasks this September:

Like the Food Bank on Facebook (www.fb.com/foodbankccs). Share
information about Hunger Action Month. Tell your contacts to like us too!

During the month of September, ANDREW D MARSHALL DDS
AND LYNNE D MARTZ DDS
will be donating $1 for every new facebook like they
get (up to $300).

Go Orange on September 6 and every Thursday
in September. Wear orange on Thursdays in September and hang a Hunger Action Month poster in your business or classroom. Or change your online avatar to one of the Hunger Action Month options on the social media page of our site. Send a tweet in support saying: “I’m going orange for the 1 in 6 people in the U.S. struggling w/hunger. #HungerAction.” Or post to Facebook.

If you or anyone you know would like a t-shirt or would be willing to hang a
poster please email lsherrill@foodbankccs.org
(limited quantities; first come, first served).

Get involved by downloading the Food Bank’s 30
Ways in 30 Days calendar
