Hunger Action Month

Hunger Action Month

 Hunger Action Month is an opportunity to be a part of a month-long movement that has a real and lasting impact on our mission to end hunger in America.

This September, team up with Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano and Feeding America food banks nationwide to take action against hunger that affects 1 in 6 Americans.

 Easy actions to take against hunger

GO ORANGE! Orange is the official color of hunger awareness and makes a bold statement to start the conversation about hunger. Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano invites you to Go Orange with us as often as you can throughout the month of September. Don’t have any orange? We’ve got you covered. Fill out this form to receive Go Orange materials to share with friends and family.

SHARE a hunger fact with friends, share the action calendar or just share a great pic of your Go Orange activities with us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram @foodbankccs #HungerAction

VOLUNTEER with the Food Bank or one of our partner agencies.

ADVOCATE for those who struggle to keep food on the table by joining our Hunger Fighters group for advocacy action updates.

EXPERIENCE the Hunger Challenge happening September 16-20. Can you shop and eat for just $4.50 a day? Get a sense of what life is like for those struggling to put food on the table with the average benefit for people who receive SNAP (formerly Food Stamps). Sign me up for the Hunger Challenge!

However you chose to participate, thank you for your commitment to ending hunger in your community! Please remember to share, post and tweet how you Go Orange for Hunger this September using #HungerAction
