What is Hunger Action Month?

Hunger Action Month is a nationwide campaign to mobilize each of us to take action against hunger. Food should not be an impossible choice but too many families often face the difficult decision between buying food and paying for housing, medicine, or transportation.  This has become the reality for even more people through the pandemic and economic crisis.

Join Philabundance this Hunger Action Month to raise awareness and join the fight to end hunger.

How to get involved

Donate Funds

Your donations help Philabundance purchase high quality food, support our agency network, and provide people access to nutritious food.  Every dollar matters as we work to relieve hunger today and end hunger for good.

Philabundance has been working hard to meet the growing need across its nine-county service area, but cannot close the increased hunger gap alone. Our country is still facing an unprecedented hunger crisis – and children are at high risk of food insecurity. 13 million children in the United States may face hunger in 2021 due to the lasting economic fallout of the pandemic.

Congress has passed temporary measures to provide families with more food each month, but those programs are set to end soon. Take action to end child hunger! Tell your legislators to make the Summer Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) program permanent and nationwide, extend the strengthened Child Tax Credit, and ensure food banks are able to meet the increased demand through providing them additional food and capacity funds.

Host a virtual or in-person food drive

Virtual Food Drives are a great way to help Philabundance in the fight against hunger.  They allow you, your friends, family, and coworkers to “shop” for needed food in our virtual store. Philabundance is able to stretch your dollar further because for every $1 donated we help provide 2 meals to someone facing food insecurity.

Take action to help Philabundance provide healthy food from the comfort of your own home!  Please head to our Food Drives page to learn more.
