Feeding South Florida gearing up for National Hunger Action Month

Every day, nearly 1 million people in South Florida, including 296,600 children, face hunger.

To continue its efforts to end hunger in South Florida, Feeding South Florida is preparing for Hunger Action Month (September), an initiative to mobilize the public to raise awareness and take action in support of domestic hunger relief. Feeding South Florida serves Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade and Monroe counties.

During the month of September, Feeding South Florida is presenting a variety of events and activities to encourage South Floridians to help end hunger and spread the word about the pervasiveness of hunger in South Florida. Through the efforts of Feeding South Florida’s Hunger Action Month committee, as well as key strategic corporate partners, South Florida residents will have the opportunity to participate in community events, corporate volunteer efforts, food drives, dress down days and more to support hunger relief. The public also is invited to volunteer on Sorting Saturdays, when they can sort, package, label and weigh donated food to be distributed to families who are struggling to make ends meet.

Feeding South Florida’s local calendar at <www.feedingsouthflorida.org> will provide individuals with exciting ways (30 Ways in 30 Days) to participate in community efforts to end hunger throughout September. These include joining the Hunger Action Month Committee or hosting a Food and Fund Drive. For more information about how to get involved, visit www.feedingsouthflorida.org or call 1-954-518-1818.
