World Hunger Action Month
Stop Hunger Now is proud to be leading the 4th annual World Hunger Action Month this October, in honor of World Food Day which is commemorated annually on October 16. World Hunger Action Month is a chance to raise awareness around hunger and empower you to join our mission to create a world without hunger. Stop Hunger Now aims to actively engage and empower everyone by providing them the opportunity to make a difference through volunteering, advocacy, or donating on behalf of the world's hungry.
We see World Hunger Action Month as the perfect motivation to energize the volunteer community to act, “be a hero,” and make an impact. World Hunger Action Month is the time to organize a packaging event for the upcoming months, donate to Stop Hunger Now and advocate on behalf of those who are served by Stop Hunger Now meals. World Hunger Action Month creates the platform to motivate the community to make a difference in a life by making cash or in-kind donations to the food-insecure of the world, changing their future today.
In 2013, thousands of volunteers around the world packaged more than 4.4 million Stop Hunger Now meals during World Hunger Action Month. This year volunteers from communities all of the US and in South Africa, Malaysia, Italy and the Philippines and Italy will package a projected goal of 3,619,417 Stop Hunger Now meals during the month of October at more than 171 events.
