Hunger Action MonthTM

September is national Hunger Action MonthTM and there are many ways you can help Fight Hunger Statewide!

Hunger Action Month™

When: Every September
Where: Nationwide

September is national Hunger Action Month™, when Feeding America, Utah Food Bank and a nationwide network of food banks unite to urge individuals to take action in their communities. The goal of Hunger Action Month™ is to mobilize the public to act on behalf of the over 46 million Americans facing hunger—and the 392,000 in our state alone. It is our opportunity to create a movement throughout September that has a real and lasting impact on our mission of Fighting Hunger Statewide.  As individuals, charities, businesses and governments, we all have a role to play in getting food to those in need. Here are just a few of the ways you can get involved in September.

What can’t you do on an empty stomach? During Hunger Action Month, you’ll see us using the symbol of an empty plate to drive awareness about the issue of hunger. We are also asking that you lend your voice to fight against hunger by sharing with your friends and family what you can’t do on an empty stomach (there’s no wrong answer), and what you can do to help. To participate, just take a photo of yourself holding up an empty paper plate with the message “On an empty stomach, I can’t ____”, then in your comments tell us what you CAN do to help end hunger. You could even use just an empty plate and put your message in your comments. Be sure to use the official #HungerActionMonth hashtag and tag us so we can see it, and perhaps share on our social media as well! We can be found on social media using the following links:
