HUNGER ACTION MONTH 2023
September is Hunger Action Month-the Feeding America network’s annual nationwide campaign designed to inspire people to take action and raise awareness of hunger in the United States. You can help engage your community by following our Ham Calendar 2023.
September 15th is Hunger Action Day-a day where collective efforts across the country are focused for greater impact. Go Orange-it is the color of hunger relief. This Hunger Action Month, let’s join together by wearing orange, turning city landmarks orange, and raising our voices all across the country on behalf of the millions of people facing hunger.
VOLUNTEER LUNCHEON 2023
On August 28, 2023, Second Harvest recognized our volunteers with a classy luncheon, including a red carpet, in the warehouse. Over 15,000 hours were logged in during Fiscal 2022-2023. That equates to over 8 full-time positions at the food bank. We are grateful for those that volunteer their time, talents, and treasures to help our neighbors in need in the 11 counties we serve!
