Hunger exists in every county in the U.S., affecting 48 million Americans including 15 million children. The Feeding America nationwide network of food banks believes that hunger IS solvable and we’re leading the fight to end it. We are asking everyone in America to take action to fight hunger in their community, all month long.

Whether it’s by advocating and raising awareness, volunteering or donating, you can find the way that’s right for you to make a difference during Hunger Action Month. Together, we can solve hunger.

What can’t you do on an empty stomach?

Everyone knows that feeling of an empty stomach. This feeling of running on empty is a reality for 48 million people in the U.S. Without that fuel and nutrition, people — kids especially — don’t have the energy to focus, learn, grow, and ultimately, succeed. Tell your friends and family what you can’t do on an empty stomach.

Write it on a plate, take a selfie, and post to your social media channels with #HungerActionMonth. Don’t forget to tag @FeedingAmerica for a chance to be featured below. It’s that easy to help raise awareness for the 1 in 7 people who struggle with hunger across America.
