It’s Not Too Late to Take Action

It's Not Too Late to Take ActionI can’t believe that this is the last week of Hunger Action Month! It has been such a great September. From our kick off at CRAVE to yummy cheesecake at the Cheesecake Factory, we had a fun time fighting hunger in Central Florida.

 Here are some ways you can help this week…

 Way #29: Organize a food drive to help feed people in Central Florida. Click here to read our “Gathering the Groceries” document. Also, make sure to check out our frequently asked questions page.

If you can’t organize your own food drive, participate in one of ours! Bring your food items to AARP’s National Event and Expo, Orlando@50+, on Thursday, September 30, Friday, October 1 or Saturday, October 2 for a FREE 1 day admission to the Expo as a thank-you for helping to feed those in need in Orlando. Check out the speakers and people performing…you want to be there! Pretty cool, right?

Portraits of Hunger at Enzian Bar - Thursday, September 30Also, don’t forget about our last event of Hunger Action Month, Way #30, our Portraits of Hunger Photo Showcase at Eden Bar! The winner of the photography contest will be announced along with a display of the photo submissions that we received.

Our photo judges are Henry Maldonado, President of Enzian TheaterJosh Garrick, Fine Art and Culture Writer for a series of news and online venues and Dave Krepcho, President/CEO of Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida.  

 Remember, Bring a bag or box of food donations (non-perishable) and receive one ticket for a free bottle of Peroni. One free Peroni per person. We hope to see you at Enzian’s Eden Bar – 1300 South Orlando Avenue – Maitland, Florida. Program starts at 7:30 p.m. 

Just because this is the last week of Hunger Action Month, doesn’t mean that we should stop taking action in the fight against hunger. Families, kids, seniors, and our neighbors need our help more than ever.  I hope that everyone had a chance to do something this September that not only helped someone, but made you feel good too. I know I did.

To our friends who shared, tweeted, liked, ate, shopped, pledged, and took action this September … thank you. The only way we can truly end hunger in Central Florida is to shed some light on the invisible problem in our community.

We are already excited thinking of new things for next Hunger Action Month! But until then, I encourage every one of you to continue taking action each and every day to help fight hunger in Central Florida.

Until next time,

Sasha Hausman
Development Manager
