September is Hunger Action Month
September is Hunger Action Month, a month to spread the word and take action on the hunger crisis. Now is the time for residents to come together to help put an end hunger "one bite at a time" in our community. As millions of Americans continue to struggle with food insecurity and unemployment due to the pandemic, please consider making a food donation at a collection box nearest you.
In South Florida, 1 in 5 individuals, including more than 333,000 children, don't know where they will get their next meal. In September and October, these food donations will assist Feeding South Florida, an organization that has been key to providing food at food distribution events during the pandemic. We are asking everyone to come together for Hunger Action Month and help put an end hunger.

Additionally, Together4Broward is a taskforce of more than a dozen service organizations collaborating during these extraordinary times to ensure residents of all ages have access to nutritious food. Many of the distribution sites are at neighborhood schools and churches. Hunger among persons experiencing homelessness is being addressed by HOPE South Florida, with "Grab 'n Go" meals and complimentary bus transportation to feeding sites.
