Hunger hurts people in every corner of the United States, including Arizona. All told, 48 million Americans are experiencing hunger. Worst of all, 15 million of them are children suffering due to circumstances beyond their control.
Thankfully, this catastrophic problem has a solution. Through your support of St. Mary’s Food Bank, you’re helping lead the fight to end hunger. This month, you can unite with caring people all across the country to feed hungry Americans. Here are three simple, direct ways to make a difference during September, Hunger Action Month.
3 Ways To Take Action
1) Give Food/Funds
Host a food or fund drive through your school, company, or church. Your canned goods or boxed items will feed a person in need. Every $1 you donate will provide 7 meals.
2) Donate Time
Volunteers form the backbone of the Food Bank. Please visit Volunteer.FirstFoodBank.org to learn about volunteer opportunities for individuals or groups.
