Your Actions Make a Difference!
With September and Hunger Action Month behind us, we wanted to thank you for your support and partnership. Thanks to you and hundreds of our community members, we came together to raise awareness about food insecurity in our community and encourage others to get involved in fighting hunger.
Because of you, we were able to meet the 1,000 action challenge. The Jessica & Bruce Morgenstern Local Impact Fund donated $5 for every action that our community members took. We also had community partners raise funds for the Anne Arundel County Food Bank on our behalf including Homestead Gardens, Ignite Annapolis, Himmel’s Landscape and Garden Center, and Bike AAA’s Lifeline 100. Our final event of the month, Cruising Out Hunger, presented by Watermark, was a picture-perfect sunset cruise (check out the event photos!) to celebrate all the actions our community took during Hunger Action Month and to raise money to support our work in the community. Altogether, these actions raised over $15,000 for the Anne Arundel County Food Bank!
We hope you will continue to take action to ensure our under-resourced neighbors have access to free, healthy food. Here are three great ways to continue taking action in your community today:
Thank you for your support. Together, we’re working to ensure every family in our community has access to the nutritious food they need.
