SEPTEMBER IS HUNGER ACTION MONTH!
It’s #HungerActionMonth, a time when people across the U.S. stand together to end hunger.
This September, FIND will raise awareness with our national network of Feeding America food banks by sharing resources, showcasing community involvement, and wearing orange, the symbolic color of hunger relief, on September 10 – Hunger Action Day.
FOUR ACTIONS YOU CAN TAKE TO FIGHT HUNGER:
Attend a volunteer orientation to learn more about our safety guidelines and our work to end hunger. Click here to sign up to distribute food at our free mobile markets or help in our warehouse in Indio, CA.Click here to go to our donations page to make a direct cash donation. You can also donate food, specifically shelf-stable proteins, at our warehouse. We love creamy peanut butter, canned tuna, canned chicken, etc. Educate yourself on the current hunger crisis and the growing number of people who are food insecure. There are resources to get you started on our website and we will share some fast-facts throughout September to help you become a true #HungerFighter.Make sure you and your neighbors have filled out the U.S. Census. It takes 10 minutes to determine the next 10 years of funding in our community. The #2020Census helps us determine who in our community is food insecure so we know who needs our services and everyone is fed.
We need volunteers!
We are experiencing a dramatic increase in the need for our services as more people are impacted by shutdowns and work stoppages. Our need for volunteers is HIGH. If you’re healthy, between the ages of 17- 64 and not in a high-risk group, please consider helping out. Volunteers must sign up online prior to showing up to help out.
Sign up for a volunteer orientation today and together we can make sure everyone has the fresh, nutritious food they need to thrive.
