September is Hunger Action Month! Eastern Illinois Foodbank joins Feeding America food banks across the country to take part in the month-long campaign to inspire people to take action and raise awareness of the fact that 40 million Americans, including 12.5 million children and 5.5 million seniors, are food insecure.
This year's campaign seeks 40,000 actions - a volunteer shift, a social media post, or a donation - from the public that will help end hunger on helping at a time.
How will you take action?
- Donate! It's easy and makes a huge impact. Every $1 provides 5 meals! Visit our donation page and help feed our neighbors in need today.
- Volunteer! EIF has several volunteer opportunities available including Operation Orange, a special Hunger Action Month 12-hour food repack!
