Take Action with Hunger Action Month
September is Hunger Action Month and we at Bag the Box are ramping up our efforts to help those who go hungry in our communities. In Minnesota, we’re teaming up with Cub Foods and Second Harvest Heartland to help feed the hungry. For every bag of Malt-O-Meal (or our delicious Better Oats instant oatmeal if you really want to share the love) purchased at Cub, we’ll make a food donation to the Minnesota Feeding America Food Banks. So stock up your pantry, and help families in need!
Want to help, but don’t live in Minnesota? No problem! There are so many food banks that could use your help all over the country. Go to Feeding America’s website, plug in your zip code, and find a local pantry that might need volunteers to stock shelves or bag groceries. While you’re at the website, take a pledge to speak out against hunger.
You can even help just by going out for a meal. Share our Strength is partnering with restaurants around the country for the Dine Out for No Kid Hungry – eat at your favorite restaurant, and it will make a donation in the fight to end child hunger (SOS says 16 million kids don’t get the food they need. That’s 1 in 5). Find a participating restaurant here.
At the end of the day, we all need help with something at one time or another. Here’s your chance to do just that. And don’t be shy – tell us about other hunger action programs where you live.
