Together, We Can Solve Hunger™
September is Hunger Action Month, when the Feeding America nationwide network of food banks unite to urge businesses and individuals to take action in their communities.
The goal of Hunger Action Month is to mobilize the public to act on behalf of the men, women and children who are food insecure in New Hampshire. It is our opportunity to create a movement throughout September that has a real and lasting impact on the New Hampshire Food Bank's mission to help end hunger in New Hampshire.
As individuals, charities, businesses and government, we all have a role to play in getting food and services to those in need. This September, join the New Hampshire Food Bank and Feeding America and Together, We Can Solve Hunger™
