September is Hunger Action Month

Ever imagine what it's like to go hungry to bed every night? One in eight Americans face hunger in their daily lives.Children and adults are being forced to go without food for several meals and in some cases even several days. Here's what you can do to keep children, adults, and seniors from going hungry.

  1. Find a food bank in your neighbourhood or community - and donate food. Food Bank Locator can be found here.
  2. Organise a food donation drive in your place of work, your child's school, or university.
  3. Find Food Bank Events for your zip code @ Food Bank Events Locator hosted by Hunger Action Month.
  4. Join the Cheesecake Factory for their Drive Out Hunger Tour in September 2009. Their aim: to collect 100,000 cans of soup. Find out when they visit your state @ The Cheesecake Factory.
  5. Join Macy's for the Come Together Event in your town @ Come+Together. Most events launch tomorrow, 15th September 2009.
