Nothing runs on empty, especially the one in eight Americans who struggle with hunger. An empty plate means an empty stomach, and on an empty stomach, no one can reach their full potential.
In September food banks across America raise awareness and take action against hunger. This year, Foodshare is offering a variety of resources to help people get involved in the anti-hunger cause throughout the month.
How can I fight hunger in my town?
You can make wishes come true for the pantries, shelters and meal programs in Hartford and Tolland counties by donating an item from our Partner Program Wish List. Over 100 items have been requested that can truly make a difference in the ways these important organizations serve their communities.
You also won’t want to miss our 30 Ways in 30 Days Calendar, which is full of anti-hunger events and volunteer opportunities that you can get involved in throughout Hunger Action Month. Be sure to go the extra mile on Thursday, September 13th, which is Hunger Action Day! Foodshare’s President and CEO Jason Jakubowski and Foodshare staff will be out in the communities that we serve volunteering at our partner programs. Keep up with us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram at #FoodshareCT.
