Please Join Us for Hunger Action Month

Jan Pruitt HeadshotDear Friend,

This month, thousands of boys and girls across North Texas are getting back into the swing of classes. To succeed at school, they’ll need regular nourishment to focus and study.

For many children in our community, a new school year means the return of free and reduced-price meals in the cafeteria. This resource is such an important lifeline for kids whose parents are struggling financially. In addition to this program, your support of the Food Bank’s Kids Cafe, Food 4 Kids and other feeding initiatives helps ensure hungry students and their families have the help they need.

With the fall season approaching, another exciting time of year is here — Hunger Action Month! Each September, friends like you join together to raise awareness about hunger in our community through special events, food drives and other activities.

You might know that I’ve been working through some of my own health challenges lately. As I focus on returning to full strength, it’s never been clearer to me how critical good nutrition truly is for every one of us. With this in mind, I’d like to invite you to join us in recognizing Hunger Action Month and encouraging your family, friends, neighbors and coworkers to do the same. Be sure to wear orange on Hunger Action Day — Thursday, September 8! We’ll regularly update our website, so please check ntfb.org/HAM to discover more ways you can get involved.

Thank you for your continued partnership in the fight against hunger. Your generosity makes real change happen in the lives of North Texans in need!
