Congresswoman Beatty Observes Hunger Action Month

Every September, our country marks Hunger Action Month, a month-long initiative where people across America pledge to fight hunger and the nationwide network of food banks band together to tackle our nation’s hunger crisis. In recognition, U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (OH-03) issued the following statement:

“It is unacceptable in the richest, most powerful country in the world that nearly 50 million people—including more than 16 million children and 10 million seniors—go hungry, and countless more are simply one job loss or medical emergency from food insecurity. That is why I call on my constituents, fellow Ohioans, and all Americans to help make our nation hunger free. You can help do so right now by donating to or volunteering at the Mid-Ohio Foodbank or any of the many community organizations helping ensure no American goes to bed hungry.”

Hunger Action Month is organized by Feeding America. For more information, please visit Feeding America’s website, and do not forget to join the conversation online by using #HungerActionMonth.
