MONTH

HUNGER ACTION

IMPOSSIBLE CHOICES

For many, a daily meal is a simple choice of what to eat. But for people facing hunger, a daily meal poses a very different type of choice. It’s often an impossible choice between food or other crucial needs, such as electricity, childcare or medicine.

September is Hunger Action Month - a time when the Feeding America network of food banks, including FARSB, and the public come together to raise awareness and inspire action to help people facing the impossible choices of hunger.
