Lowcountry Food Bank

Hunger Action Month 2014

Throughout the month of September, The Lowcountry Food Bank will join Feeding America and their network of more than 200 food banks for Hunger Action Month by hosting a series of events aimed at fighting hunger in the ten coastal counties of South Carolina. Hunger Action Month is part of a nationwide effort to motivate local action to end hunger.

The 10 coastal counties of South Carolina have experienced an increase in the number of working families who are turning to hunger relief agencies to make ends meet. As more and more families struggle to pay for rising costs of energy and other essentials, money left over at the end of the week for food is scarce.

Hunger Action Month will enable community leaders, businesses and families to join in the fight against hunger by raising awareness of the food crisis locally and nationwide. Together, we can make a huge difference.

Take Action!

Many small actions can make a huge impact on hunger in our community! You can volunteer, make a monetary or food donation, or simply be an advocate for the families, children and seniors in our community who need your help. Use our 30 Ways in 30 days to find little ways to take action in your community!
