What Is 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.

If you are interested in participating in or sponsoring Hunger Action Month in 2022, please contact Melanie at communications@aafoodbank.org.
