Hungry? We Can Help

Living Hopefully.

Great American Milk Drive
02-Apr-2019



A network survey showed that milk is one of the top nutritious food or beverage product requested by clients, but that nearly half of food banks get fewer than 24 gallons of milk donated per week. That’s why Feeding America has partnered with the dairy industry – including dairy farmers and milk companies – to launch an initiative called The Great American Milk Drive.

Launched in April 2014, The Great American Milk Drive is the first-ever nationwide program to help deliver highly desired and nutrient-rich gallons of milk to hungry families who need it most. Click "Learn More" to give the gift of milk!

Hunger Action Month
01-Sep-2019



Hunger Action Month (September) is the Feeding America network's nationwide awareness driver, designed to mobilize the public to take action on the issue of hunger. This annual month-long campaign brings attention to the reality of food insecurity in the United States and promotes ways for individuals across the U.S. to get involved in the movement to help end hunger. You can help engage your community by leveraging these materials, ideas, and tools.

With the combined effort of Feeding America, the nationwide network of food banks, and you, this campaign will raise awareness about hunger and inspire Americans to get involved in September and throughout the rest of the year.

The 2019 campaign theme will be "We can end hunger - one helping at a time."

Feeding America is asking everyone to take action during Hunger Action Month. This September, we're seeking 40,000 actions from the public – a donation, a volunteer shift, a social media post – actions that will help end hunger, one helping at a time."
