September is Hunger Action Month, and CFBNJ, along with Feeding America and food banks across the country, will take special steps to raise awareness about this crucial issue — and encourage people to help make an impact. More than 1.1 million people in New Jersey face hunger, including 1 in 5 children in the state. Nationally, 49 million Americans struggle with hunger.
There are so many ways you can get involved: you can donate, volunteer, advocate and educate. All through September we have special events and opportunities for you to take action, including ideas in our 30 Ways in 30 Days calendar.
Please visit our Hunger Action Month page, and join the movement! We look forward to your action and support this month and every month!
