WHY SHOULD YOU PARTICIPATE?
Hunger exists in every county in the United States, affecting 42 million Americans including 13 million children. In Boulder and Broomfield Counties, hunger is a reality for 1 in 8 people. The Feeding America network believes that hunger IS solvable and we’re leading the fight to end it.
HOW CAN YOU PARTICIPATE?
Attend an event to benefit Community Food Share:
– Farm to Fork Dinner at Whimsy Farm to kick off the month | Saturday, August 25 | More information
– We’ll be adding more events closer to September — check back regularly!
Donate to Community Food Share: For every $5 donated, we can distribute 15 meals!
Volunteer to help sort food and stock pantry shelves
Take a tour of Community Food Share, and see our operation in action!
Join the national conversation by posting a selfie — find a paper plate, scribble what you couldn’t do on an empty stomach. On the opposite side, write what you can do to fight hunger. See Nina’s example below! Post a photo with your plate to social media with #HungerActionMonth. Tag @CommunityFoodShare and @FeedingAmerica.
