September is Hunger Action Month!

Did you know that 1 in 8 Pennsylvanians might not know where their next meal is coming from?

The feeling of “running on empty” is too real for many of our neighbors. This September, YOU, can take action to help end hunger.

September is Hunger Action Month, a national initiative coordinated by Feeding America, America’s largest network of hunger relief organizations. Second Harvest is a member of Feeding America along with over 200 regional food banks across the nation.

Take action by taking an Empty Plate Selfie – find a paper plate, scribble what you couldn’t do on an empty stomach and post a photo to social media with #HungerActionMonth. Tag @shfblv to join the conversation. Post by post, our community will become more aware of the hunger in our backyard.

If you need some inspiration, check out our pals from the Iron Pigs, FeFe and Ferrous with their Empty Plate Selfies!

Be sure to visit our Facebook page and our Hunger Action Month page  for updates and suggestions on daily, hunger-fighting activities that will help make a difference.
