Hunger Action Month is a nationwide campaign to mobilize the public to take action on the issue of hunger. The campaign brings greater attention to hunger in the U.S. and promotes ways for people everywhere to get involved in the movement to fight it.
You can help mobilize your community and get involved by taking any or all of the actions below.
Take Action Online:
#SPOONTEMBER Spoontember supporters can share a ‘spoon selfie’ – an image of themselves balancing a spoon on their nose – along with hunger-related statistics and challenge a friend to do the same.
TURN ORANGE FOR HUNGER RELIEF™ by making your Facebook and Twitter profiles orange on Hunger Action Day (9/4) or any time during September
DONATE your status and share your local hunger statistics on Facebook and Twitter.

PLEDGE your support for the more than 1 in 5 kids in the United States who face hunger by signing Feeding America’s Feeding a Strong Future pledge.
