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.
