Everyone knows that feeling of an empty stomach. When there was no time for breakfast. Or a meeting was booked over lunch. Or, perhaps it’s because there’s just no food in the fridge to make a meal.

The feeling of running on empty is a reality for 48 million Americans. In northeast Georgia, 1 in 4 people face that feeling on a regular basis.
Without that fuel and nutrition, people —kids especially —don’t have the energy to focus, learn, grow, and ultimately, succeed.

We need to make sure that no child, adult or senior in America ever runs on empty, and this September, we’re asking everyone to come together for Hunger Action Month to help end hunger.

You can help by mobilizing your community, leveraging the materials/ideas/tools in the following slides. As individuals, charities, businesses and government, we all have a role to play in getting food to our neighbors in need.

Hunger Action Month is a multi-faceted effort to mobilize the public to end hunger in our community.
