Hunger Action Month

Second Harvest Mobile Pantry Corps

What is Hunger Action Month?

September is Hunger Action Month — the Feeding America network’s annual nationwide campaign designed to inspire people to act and raise awareness of hunger in the United States. You can help.

September 23rd is Hunger Action day. It is a day where collective efforts across the country are focused for greater impact. This year, at Second Harvest, we will all GO ORANGE for the day and gather our staff for our yearly photo. We will also join together for a potluck and fundraiser.

What can you do to make a difference this year?

  • Visit Second Harvest Food Bank's Nordson Food Distribution Center during the month of September.
  • Write to your local elected official and urge them to fight hunger in your community.
  • Skip your morning coffee throughout the month and donate what you would have spent to Second Harvest to support mobile school pantries.
  • Start a Facebook fundraiser or Virtual Food Drive. We can create a page for you! E-mail Mindi Flynn for more info.
  • Post how you are choosing to end hunger on your social media channels and ask your followers to join you!
  • Volunteer at Second Harvest or at one of our Partner Charity locations. Learn more about our volunteer opportunities HERE!
  • Wear ORANGE throughout the month of September to spread awareness and show your commitment towards ending hunger. Share a pic of your orange style socially with @FeedingAmerica & @SecondHarvestOH and use the hashtag #HungerActionMonth.
  • Turn your building or landmarks ORANGE throughout the month of September.
  • Join us for our 2022 Generous Helpings event on Sunday, September 25th, from 5:00-8:00pm or make a donation to help families in our community. Learn more HERE!

Go Orange:

Orange is the color of hunger relief. This Hunger Action Month let's join together by wearing orange, turning our city landmarks orange, and raising our voices all across the country on behalf of the millions of people facing hunger.

For many, a daily meal is a simple choice of what to eat. But for people facing hunger, a daily meal poses a very different type of choice. It's often an impossible choice between food and other crucial needs, such as electricity, childcare or medicine.
