September is Hunger Action Month

September is Hunger Action Month, so the national food bank Feeding America is working to end hunger in America! Here are some ways you can participate in Hunger Action Month:

  • Find a Food Pantry or Soup Kitchen near you! Food Bank NYC partners with Feeding America to provide meals and ingredients to families in need.
  • Find out how you can volunteer with Food Bank NYC. If you are able, volunteering is a experience for you and will help you make a difference in your community.
  • Minimize your food waste! Read these guidelines from the Environmental Protection Agency to learn how and why we should waste less food.
  • Check out the BeWell Cookbook if you’re looking for recipes that are delicious, healthy, and can be made on a budget.
