FEEDING OUR COMMUNITY TOGETHER

Hunger Action Month is a nationwide initiative that takes place each September, uniting communities, organizations, and individuals in a powerful movement to raise awareness and take meaningful action against food insecurity. Throughout this month, we come together to shine a spotlight on the urgent issue of hunger that affects millions of people across the country. It’s a time to channel our collective efforts, advocate for change, and support programs that provide nourishment to those in need. By participating in Hunger Action Month, we join a nationwide endeavour to create a stronger, more resilient community where everyone has access to nutritious food and the resources they require to thrive.
