Hunger Action Month: Get Involved
By Jennifer Gilmore

September is Hunger Action Month, an impactful time when organizations across the nation unite to urge individuals to take action. As community members, businesses and government, everyone has a role to play in solving hunger and getting food to those in need.

There are several ways you can get involved this month.

  • Go orange for hunger-relief. Show your support by wearing orange every Thursday during September.
  • Take action online at Complete awareness-raising tasks to turn your state orange.
  • Call or write your elected officials asking them to support local hunger-relief programs.
  • Take the CalFresh Challenge and live on $4.90 a day. Get a sense of what like is like for those struggling to put food on the table by shopping for your meals with the daily average per person benefit provided by the CalFresh/Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. To learn more about the CalFresh Challenge, visit

With Feeding America San Diego’s recent release of the Hunger in America 2014 study, we continue to learn more about the need and how we can best serve those who need help. I ask that you join us in the fight against hunger with your time, food, funds and voice. Together, we can mobilize our communities to create real change this September.
