What is Hunger Action Month?

Hunger Action Month is a nationwide campaign to mobilize the public to take action against hunger. Due to the increase in need cause by the COVID-19 pandemic, spreading awareness and joining the fight against hunger is critical. Check out all the ways you can support Philabundance and be a hunger hero all month long.

Advocate

Philabundance has been working hard to meet the growing need across its nine-county service area but cannot close the increasing hunger gap alone. Federal nutrition programs, like the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), are absolutely critical to meeting this increased need. You can advocate for a 15 percent increase in SNAP benefits by sending this email to Congress. A 15 percent increase in SNAP benefits for households would decrease hunger, support local businesses and relieve pressure from emergency food providers.

Host a virtual or in-person food drive

Virtual food drives save us valuable resources, such as trucks, fuel and staff hours. By “shopping” in our virtual store as a team, you and your friends, family, and coworkers can collectively multiply the amount of food your usual donation can provide to those in need by contributing to the Philabundance food fund. Plus, you can make a big impact even from the comfort of your own home.

Due to COVID-19, physical food drive donations are being accepted by appointment only. Please head to our Food Drives page to learn more.
