Each September, Connecticut Food Bank, in conjunction with Feeding America, marks national Hunger Action Month, when we, along with our partners in the fight against hunger, mobilize everyone everywhere to get involved in ending hunger in America.
In Conneciticut, 1 in 5 children is hungry. We can do better as a community and we must do better. Here’s some quick ideas on how to get involved:
- WEAR orange, the color of hunger relief on Thursday, September 4. Send your photo to email@example.com, or tweet @CTfoodbank.
- ADVOCATE for those who struggle to keep food on the table by educating yourself and your friends and family about the problem of hunger in your community.
- ORGANIZE a virtual food drive to benefit Connecticut Food Bank or a food/fund drive to benefit your local food pantry, soup kitchen or shelter.
- VOLUNTEER at Connecticut Food Bank or your local food pantry, soup kitchen or shelter.
- SHARE a hunger fact with your friends online.
- EXPERIENCE the SNAP (Food Stamp) Challenge and see firsthand what it’s like to live on $4.15 a day for food.
- SKIP your daily latte or coffee for a week and donate your savings to Connecticut Food Bank.
