Hunger Action Month

Hundreds of thousands of people in Contra Costa and Solano counties now experience food insecurity. Your voice, your actions and your commitment are critical in the movement to end hunger.

To raise awareness of food insecurity in our community, in partnership with Feeding America food banks nationwide, the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano honors Hunger Action Month every September. Throughout the month, we will share inspiring actions you can take to fight hunger and feed hope. With food inflation hitting many who can least afford it, it’s critically important we support those in our community struggling with hunger. 

But…we need YOUR help!
