Hunger Action Month

Hunger Action Month

September is Hunger Action Month

For hundreds of thousands of people in Hawaii, a daily meal isn’t a choice between different dishes. It’s a choice between food and other crucial needs — like medicine, electricity or childcare. 

Food shouldn’t be an impossible choice.

After a tumultuous year, Hawai‘i’s hunger crisis is far from over. COVID-19 has made the need for food assistance even greater, and 1 in 6 Hawaii residents are paying to live life by sacrificing their meals. Hawaii Foodbank will continue to take action to help people achieve long-term food security, so they no longer have to make such tough decisions. This September, join us for Hunger Action Month.

We have the choice totake action against hunger.
