Hunger Action Month

September is Hunger Action Month™, when St. Mary’s and food banks across the country ask everyone to take action to fight hunger in their community, all month long. Hunger Action Month is an opportunity for you or your organization to join a movement that has a real and lasting impact on our efforts to alleviate hunger in Arizona.

St. Mary’s Hunger Action Month is sponsored by Fry’s Food Stores which is committed to ending hunger in the community and eliminating waste across the company as part of its Zero Hunger | Zero Waste initiative.
