Hunger Action Month is a month-long awareness campaign to inspire action against hunger. Throughout the month of September, AFAC will work with local partners including businesses, libraries, ART Transit, and area farmers to educate the community about food insecurity and to invite all to join in the task of feeding our neighbors in need. With full plates and full hearts, you can help end hunger.

Visit our Hunger Action Month webpage for a full listing of events and details.
