Hunger Action Month
September is Hunger Action Month, when the Feeding America nationwide network of food banks, including FeedMore, unites to urge individuals to take action in their communities. The goal of FeedMore’s Hunger Action Month is to mobilize all of Central Virginia to get involved with and shine a light on hunger-relief efforts in our community. In Central Virginia, 1 in 7 people struggle with hunger every day. Get involved and join us in the movement to end hunger in our community!
FeedMore’s Hunger Action Month 30 Ways in 30 Days Calendar is full of great ideas on how to get involved in Central Virginia. Download the calendar and share it with your family, friends and co-workers and take advantage of all the fun ways to mobilize and raise awareness about the seriousness of hunger in our community. Also, check us out on Twitter at @FeedMoreInc for daily reminders!
On Thursday, September 3rd, we are encouraging everyone in Central Virginia to show their support for hunger relief by “Going Orange." Wear orange for the day! Rent an orange themed costume! Have a pot-luck lunch featuring all orange colored foods! Whatever you decide, take photos of yourself “Going Orange” for hunger and share them with us, tagging FeedMore with #HungerActionMonth and #GoOrange.
On September 16th and September 17th, The Community Foundation will hold the 5th annual Amazing Raise, our region's 36-hour online giving challenge supporting FeedMore and hundreds of other charitable organizations. During this exciting giving extravaganza, every $50 donation made to FeedMore has the potential to multiply through additional grants/prizes awarded by The Community Foundation and the event’s sponsors. Save the date and help us spread the word so we can feed more neighbors in need!
