September is Hunger Action Month.

GardenShare is raising awareness about hunger and food security issues in our communities - and giving YOU plenty of ways to take action!

Although COVID is preventing in person events from taking place, we’ve been working hard to make sure Hunger Action Month is still engaging!

September 1-30: Activity Calendar

Follow along with our online, daily activity calendar. From articles and TED Talks to sharing photos on social media, each day has an action that you can take to inform yourself and others about issues of hunger and food justice and ways to get involved and make a difference locally.
