September is Hunger Action Month. Hunger exists in every county in the U.S., affecting 48 million Americans including 15 million children. In northeast North Carolina, we have approximately 58,040 people facing food insecurity. Food Bank of the Albemarle believes that hunger IS solvable and we’re leading the charge to end it and ask everyone to take action to fight hunger in our community, all month long. Whether it’s by advocating and raising awareness, volunteering or donating, you can find the way that’s right for you to make a difference during Hunger Action Month. Together, we can be a part of the solution to end hunger.
In 2016, Food Bank of the Albemarle was featured on The Hampton Roads Show along with Virginia area food banks in support of Hunger Action Month. Click here to view our segment on the show!
