Happy October! This month marks the 4th annual World Hunger Action Month (WHAM)! Around the world, more than 805 million people lack adequate food and more than 21,000 die each day from hunger-related illnesses. In response, we'll be showing you how you can alleviate hunger worldwide no matter where you are through planning, educating, acting and giving. This month, we ask everyone to join the global movement -- because when it comes to hunger, the only acceptable number is zero. Learn more: www.stophungernow.org/WHAM
