About Hunger Action Month
September is Hunger Action Month, a nationwide movement to take a stand against hunger and help our neighbors in need. We ask everyone in Anne Arundel County to take action to fight hunger in their community all month long. Every action – big or small – makes a real difference. Each day, we have a different way you can take action. Find out more information on Anne Arundel County Food Bank and their Hunger Action Month activities here: www.aafoodbank.org/action.
