September is Hunger Action Month, Take Action it's Easy
The Montgomery Area Food Bank is asking the River Region to help raise awareness during Hunger Action Month. There will be a number of events during the month (please see calendar) including Hunger Action Day on September 13.
The “Action” being promoted during Hunger Action month is social media driven. People are encouraged to post an image of themselves holding a paper plate which reads:
“On an empty stomach I can’t ____________”. or
“To help end hunger I can _____________" to social media.
Those who post are being asked to tag @MontgomeryAreaFoodBankIncand @FeedingAmerica and use the hashtag #FeedingHopeAL and #HungerActionMonth.
Each week during the month of September the Montgomery Area Food Bank will spotlight one of its programs.
•Week #1: Agency Awareness Week
•Week #2: Senior Supplement Program Awareness Week
•Week #3: Mobile Pantry Program Awareness Week
•Week #4: Volunteer Program Awareness Week
This is Mobile Pantry Program (MP) Awareness Week, as we recognize Hunger Action month. We conduct MP distributions every work day – somewhere within our service area. Each “single” distribution is conducted with one of our pre-qualified, participating agencies, and routinely delivers between 5 and 7 tons of assistance to ONE place at ONE time.
Today, we conducted two MPs – each was a “double” which means close to 30 tons of assistance was delivered to your neighbors in need…almost 80% of which was nutrient-rich produce.
