Hunger Action Month

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

September is national Hunger Action MonthTM, 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 MonthTM is to mobilize the public to act on behalf of all the hungry Utahns and Utah Food Bank. It is our opportunity to create a movement throught 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.
