Feeding Northeast Florida helping to raise hunger awareness during Hunger Action Month


Regional food bank Feeding Northeast Florida (FNEFL) is joining with food banks across the nation to raise awareness of hunger by designating the month of September as Hunger Action Month.

As part of that initiative, FNEFL is encouraging local residents to participate in Hunger Action Day on Sept. 8 by donating the average cost of one meal to the food bank. Donations may be made on line at www.feedingnefl.org. One in six people face hunger in Northeast Florida’s eight counties. Approximately 280,000 people in the food bank’s service area experience food insecurity.
