September is Hunger Action Month. It’s an opportunity to learn more and get involved in the movement to create a hunger-free community.
Each week, on social media, we’ll focus on a different action you can take. Pick one (or more than one). Ending hunger takes action. Ending hunger takes you. What action will you take?
Inform & inspire.
Share a hunger fact a week on social media. Or… ever received SNAP benefits, been faced with the choice to “heat or eat,” visited a food pantry, volunteered at one, donated to WCFB, or otherwise been impacted by the problem of hunger? Tell your story. Use this link or #HungerActionWCFB on social media throughout the month of September.
Raise your voice.
Sign up for Advocacy Action Alerts from WCFB. We’ll send you an e-mail (typically not more than two or three times per month) when there’s a letter to write or a call to make around policies and programs that matter.
Give food, give funds.
Stop by your local pantry with a bag of groceries. Stage an office food drive to support WCFB. Donate funds. You can do it online right here. And – new this month! – set up your very own fundraising page for WCFB. Encourage friends and family to give what they can. For every $1 received, we’re able to distribute $4 worth of donated food to neighbors.
Learn more about volunteering at WCFB or with WCFB Partner Agencies: local pantries, community meal programs, and shelters across the region that partner with us to provide food to those who need it. Visit our Volunteer Page or call Dexter Viator, Community Engagement Coordinator, at (508) 842-3663.
