Today @ MAND: September is Hunger Action Month!

September 8th, 2021

September is “Hunger Action Month” from GBFB and Feeding America.

We need your help throughout the month of September to help us raise awareness about the issue of hunger in our community.
 
During the month of September, The Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB) and the Feeding America network will raise awareness about hunger and we’re asking you to join us during this nationwide month of action.

You can Choose to end hunger by donating, fundraising, volunteering, learning about hunger in your community, or advocating for food assistance.

  • Raise awareness about hunger on social media. Share your pictures, stories, and calls to action on platforms like Twitter and Facebook. Check out the weekly themes below! As part of MAND, let us know via social media what you and/or your company may be doing this month to participate and be sure to tag us!
  • Tag @Gr8BosFoodBank and use the hashtags #HungerActionMonth, #EndHungerHere, and/or #EveryActionCounts so we can amplify your posts! Be sure to tag #eatrightma as well 🙂
  • Wear orange, the national color of hunger, on Hunger Action Day (Friday, September 17) and post a selfie. Boston landmarks will be lit orange that day as well!
