September is Hunger Action Month
All throughout September, the North Texas Food Bank will stand together with Feeding America and its extensive network of food banks in raising awareness on the issue of hunger. Hunger Action Month unites diverse communities who each share a commitment to closing the hunger gap, and have pledged to take action and work toward proving more healthy meals to food-insecure neighbors. Locally in North Texas, there are many ways you can get involved, and help hungry neighbors during this month-long campaign. We’ve compiled opportunities for every day of September at www.ntfb.org/ham, and included below are a few highlights to consider:
Canstruction, September 7-22
Canstruction is currently on display now through Sunday, September 22 at NorthPark Center. View the various ‘Heroes Against Hunger’ cansculptures, and make a donation to vote for your favorite – $1 buys 1 vote (and three meals for our hungry neighbors). All proceeds support NTFB.
