Lowcountry Food Bank

Hunger Action Month 2013

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!

Below is our calendar of ways to get involved in Hunger Action Month! Learn a fact, take part in an event, help build hunger awareness -- PLEASE HELP and take action to fight hunger in our community. Thank you for making a difference in the lives of thousands of hungry families, children, and elderly in the lowcountry.
