September is Hunger Action Month when Feeding America and food banks ask everyone in America to take action to fight hunger in their community, all month long. Hunger Action Month is your opportunity to join a movement that has a real and lasting impact in our effort to feed more Americans than ever before. On the local level, the Snohomish Community Food Bank has developed a Calendar of Events for September 2016 to help our community to know about, share in and fight against hunger. There are days for individual activities and there are days where you can invite your friends and family or affiliated groups to join you in participation.
