September is Hunger Action Month

For so many people, hunger is a daily struggle. In fact, one in six people in North Texas don’t know where their next meal will come from. You can help. Take action during Hunger Action Month.

Join Tarrant Area Food Bank, Feeding America and food banks across the country in this effort to fight hunger.

This year’s Hunger Action Month theme is focused on the universal feeling of an empty stomach. So many children, families and seniors across our 13-county area wake up to empty shelves and go to bed with rumbling stomachs. With your help, we’re changing that. You make the nutritious food we provide to hungry North Texans possible.

 

Please help us spread the word about Hunger Action Month. Invite your friends and family to join you for one of our September events.
