Spoontember™

This September, we will make the spoon the central icon for Hunger Action MonthTM.

We are launching SpoontemberTM, a social media activation to engage the public and help raise awareness of the 1 in 7 Americans struggling with hunger. Spoontember supporters can share a ‘spoon selfie’ – an image of themselves balancing a spoon on their nose – along with hunger-related statistics and challenge a friend to do the same.  

How to make a spoon selfie for Spoontember

It’s easy to share a ‘spoon selfie’ and support Hunger Action Month:

  • Grab a spoon
  • Do your best to balance it on your nose
  • Take a picture of your ‘spoon selfie’
  • Post the image to your social media accounts to raise awareness and tag a friend to do the same. Here is some sample copy to get your started:
    • I’m taking a spoon selfie to raise awareness for the 1 in 7 Americans struggling with hunger. I challenge (name) to join me! #Spoontember #HungerActionMonth @FeedingAmerica
