September is Hunger Action Month. During this time, people all across America stand together to fight hunger.
In Los Angeles County alone, 1 in 7 people struggle with hunger,
but you can join us to make a difference.
Every $1 donated to the Food Bank provides 4 nutritious meals for someone struggling with hunger. Just imagine, if you gave up one $5 latte every week and donated to the Food Bank instead, you’d help us distribute more than 1,000 meals in one year! Visit LAFoodBank.org/donate to learn how to make a monthly, tax-deductible donation.
Having a birthday this month? Start a fundraiser. It is a fast and easy way to let your loved ones know that you care about feeding hungry people in our community.
For the month of September, we invite you to post a photo of you enjoying your favorite meal with your favorite people. Use the hashtag #MyFavoriteMeal, tag @lafoodbank and pledge to donate $10 so that others facing hunger in our community can share their favorite meal with their loved ones. Like, tweet, follow and share! Join the conversation online and help us build our community of #HungerHeroes. @lafoodbank
If you are interested in hosting an event, starting a fundraiser or if you can come up with a new, creative way to support our mission we’d love to hear your idea!
The fact is, hunger hurts all kinds of people—even people you’d least expect. Sharing your story can help others feel like they are less alone. Do you have a story about food insecurity? Share it with us so we can inspire others.
