Hunger Action Month 2019

Hunger Action Month™ (HAM) is the Feeding America network’s nationwide awareness campaign designed to mobilize the public to take action on the issue of hunger. Hunger Action Day®, September 12th, is a time for hunger-relief advocates to focus our efforts on one day for greater impact.

We’re asking everyone to take action during Hunger Action Month and we need your help. Feeding America along with the Coastal Bend Food Bank is asking everyone to take action during HUNGER ACTION MONTH. This September, we’re seeking 40,000 actions from the public- a donation, a volunteer hour, a social media post – actions that will help end hunger, one helping at a time.
