World Hunger Action Month
Stop Hunger Now is proud to be leading the third annual World Hunger Action Month this October, in honor of World Food Day which is commemorated annually on October 16th. World Hunger Action Month is a chance to raise awareness around hunger and empower the community to join Stop Hunger Now in their 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.
Stop Hunger Now sees World Hunger Action Month as the perfect motivation to energize the volunteer community to take action, “be a hero,” and make an impact. World Hunger Action Month is the time to organize a packaging event for the upcoming months. October is also the time to arm supporters with facts about hunger and advocate on behalf of organizations like Stop Hunger Now, and 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 raising funds or making in-kind donations to the food-insecure of the world, changing their future, today.
In 2012, thousands of volunteers around the world packaged more than 2.3 million Stop Hunger Now meals during World Hunger Action Month. This year volunteers from communities all of the US and in South Africa, Malaysia and Italy will package a projected goal of 3.9 million Stop Hunger Now meals during the month of October at more than 127 events.
