September is Hunger Action Month
by Linda St.Cyr, Contributing Writer
September is the month to get involved and feel inspired by joining Hunger Action Month. Feeding America has launched a “30 ways in 30 days” initiative to get people involved in making a difference during hunger awareness month.
September is the month to take action. A good start to taking action this month is by signing the pledge to participated in 30 ways in 30 days at the Hunger Action Month website. Then explore the different ways you can make a difference in the lives of the community around you. Find one way or several ways that you can help feed the hungry during this important month where we fight to stomp out domestic hunger.
A few of the ideas provided by Hunger Action Month include giving to food pantries, setting up a food drive, writing letters to elected officials about the importance of food programs, and making donations to local food bank programs. If you decide to give to food pantries or hold a food drive keep in mind that there are some foods that are more needed than others. Cheeto’s and Dorito’s are nice snacks but feeding the hungry means also providing good nutrition too.
Some of the most needed foods are canned protein’s (tuna fish, salmon, potted meat, chicken), canned fruits in water or light syrup, condiments, whole grain foods (rice, pasta, mac & cheese), 100% juices, dry and canned soups, canned vegetables and multi-grain cereals like Cheerios.
