Gleaning America's Fields ~ Feeding America's Hungry

 

 

Hunger Action Month

 

Nearly 50 million people in the United States today are hungry or food insecure. Yet in this country, we will throw away over 133 billion pounds of good food this year. As people of faith, it is time for us to take action—to say that this situation is unacceptable and to do something about it.

September is Hunger Action Month. Plan now to make September 2014 a time for your congregation to stand together against hunger, joining with the Society of St. Andrew to see that each person in this country has healthy, nourishing food to eat.

 

Hunger Action Month Resources

Daily Calendar for Prayer and Action

Scripture reading and related activity for each day of September. Using this calendar, your congregants will take direct action against hunger and give money that, through the Society of St. Andrew, will be used to put nourishing fruits and vegetables on the tables of our hungry brothers and sisters right here in the U.S.
