September is Hunger Action Month

HamLogoHunger Action Month is a nationwide campaign to mobilize the public to take action on the issue of hunger.  Organized by Feeding America, the campaign brings greater attention to the issue of hunger in America and promotes ways for individuals to get involved with the movement to solve it.
In East Texas, over 252,000 East Texans are food insecure.  That's 1 in 4 children and 1 in 5 adults who don't know where their next meal is coming from.
Be sure to bookmark this page and visit throughout the month to see how you can get involved and Take Action Against Hunger.
