September is Hunger Action Month

Anti-hunger advocates from across the country to raise awareness of the 49 million people in the US who face hunger by taking part in Hunger Action Month.

Join anti-hunger advocates from across the country to raise awareness of the 49 million people in the US who face hunger by taking part in Hunger Action Month - a month-long campaign to help end hunger in our country.

You can rally for hunger relief by doing these simple tasks this September:

Like the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano on Facebook (www.fb.com/foodbankccs). Share information about Hunger Action Month on social media. 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 every Thursday in September. Wear orange on Thursdays in September and hang a Hunger Action Month poster in your business or classroom. If you or anyone you know would like a t-shirt or would be willing to hang a banner or poster please email lsherrill@foodbankccs.org (limited quantities; first come, first served). 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 and 6 people in the U.S. struggling w/hunger. #HungerAction.” Or post to Facebook.

Get involved by downloading the Food Bank’s 30 Ways in 30 Days calendar, to find daily ways to make a difference.  

The Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano would like to thank our Hunger Action Month sponsor: AT&T Pioneers.
