It's Hunger Action Month!
More New Yorkers than ever are facing hunger in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. But hunger CAN be defeated if we work together. That’s why every September for Hunger Action Month, Food Bank partners with brands, influencers, advocates, and New Yorkers like YOU to help raise funds and awareness in the fight to end hunger. Our theme this year is “I Am FOR NYC”, a call to action for ALL New Yorkers to embrace their role as friend and supporter in this fight. We’re excited to partner with Seamless® – with their support and the support of their diners, we are providing 250,000 meals to our neighbors in need. Ready to make YOUR impact? Show us how you are FOR NYC below!
WAYS TO TAKE ACTION THIS MONTH
Help Hungry Students
Going back to school looks different this year amid COVID-19 and means not all kids will have access to the free school meals they rely on. Your gift today can help!
Raise Money with Friends
Start an online fundraiser to get your friends, family and followers involved in our mission this Hunger Action Month – every $1 raised provides 5 meals!
Fight for Struggling Families
Call on the Senate to expand vital protections to help struggling Americans by urging them to increase SNAP and other post-pandemic benefits.
Send a Message of Hope
Send hope and a smile to New Yorkers in need during this difficult time using our Dear New York letter-writing toolkit with everything you need to get started!
Get New York City kids + teens involved in our fight to end hunger this month by using our social media engagement toolkit with everything they’ll need to get started!
We’re working to address food insecurity at all angles throughout Hunger Action Month. From an inside look at innovations to come from our CEO to a virtual gathering of tastemakers to fundraise and make a difference – we look forward to having you join us at these upcoming events!
