Hunger Action Month



September is Hunger Action Month! spoon selfieEvery September, Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida and Food Banks across the nation participate in Hunger Action Month. During this time we ask our communities to lend their voice and spread the word about hunger.

Will you lend us your voice this September for Hunger Action Month?

30 Ways in 30 Days
Use our online “30 Ways in 30 Days”   calendar to find activities that can be done each day in September to help fight hunger here in Central Florida. Some actions are small like sharing a statistic about hunger in Central Florida via Facebook while some are larger like attending one of the special events that month.

Spoontember

Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida and food banks across the country in the Feeding America Network are using spoons to spread awareness of the 1 in 6 Americans who struggle with hunger. We challenge you all to spread awareness by taking an orange spoon selfie!

It’s easy to share a ‘spoon selfie’ and support Hunger Action Month:
•Grab a spoon
•Do your best to balance it on your nose
•Take a picture of your ‘spoon selfie’
•”I’m taking a spoon selfie to raise awareness for the 1 in 6 Americans struggling with hunger. I challenge (name) to join me! #Spoontember #HungerActionMonth @FeedHopeNow”
or “Join me and take a #Spoontember selfie to raise awareness for the 1 in 6 facing hunger! #HungerActionMonth @FeedHopeNow”

Use #Spoontember and #HungerActionMonth to fuel the movement

Let’s work together to create hunger awareness through Hunger Action Month this September!
