WHAT IS HUNGER ACTION MONTH?

September is Hunger Action Month. Mid-South Food Bank is dedicated to driving awareness and inspiring action to help end hunger in America, both at a national scale and on the ground in local communities.

September 17th is Hunger Action Day—a day where collective actions across the country are focused on ending hunger.

Food shouldn’t be an impossible choice.

For many, a daily meal is just a choice of what to eat for dinner. But for people facing hunger, a daily meal poses a very different type of choice. It’s often an impossible choice between food and other critical needs such as utilities, housing, or medicine.
This year’s Hunger Action Month campaign leverages dynamic visuals and action-based language that prompts people to consider the impossible choices that often confront people facing hunger.
How will you choose to end hunger?
