September is Hunger Action Month

During the month of September, The Greater Boston Food Bank will participate in Hunger Action Month, part of a national initiative to “Speak Out Against Hunger.” Across the nation, nearly 49 million people face hunger. In Eastern Massachusetts one in nine residents is food insecure. In children, that number is as many as one in four. Governor Patrick realizes the importance of raising awareness of hunger in the Commonwealth, and has proclaimed September as “Hunger Action Month” in the state of Massachusetts for the second consecutive year. Here are three simple ways you can get involved this month and make a difference to more than half a million people in Eastern Massachusetts who suffer from hunger:

  1. Spread Awareness
    • Fill out a #paperplate in support of GBFB’s advocacy campaign
  2.  Attend an Event
  3. Make a Difference With GBFB
      • Help at a GBFB Mobile Market
      • Visit GBFB to help sort food donations
      • Every $1 donated provides enough food for 2.36 meals
      • 90.5% of all money donated goes directly to hunger relief

  Hunger is a curable epidemic. Please do your part by helping raise awareness during Hunger Action Month and staying involved through the holiday season. Together we can end hunger here.
