September is National Hunger Action Month

Empty Bowls ClarksvilleClarksville, TN – In America we tend to think of hunger as a minimal problem. But, it is estimated one in six Americans – and one in five children in the U.S. – are dealing with a very real hunger problem. Nearly 15 percent of Americans live in food insecure households, where a lack of money and/or resources means there isn’t consistent access to quality food and nutrition.

September is National Hunger Action Month; nationwide people are asked to take action to fight hunger in their communities. Hunger Action Month offers an opportunity to share your time, talent and resources to impact your local food pantries and soup kitchens to help feed Clarksville-Montgomery County Residents who struggle every day.
