Congresswoman Beatty Recognizes Importance of Hunger Action Month
Every September, our country marks Hunger Action Month, a public awareness program to highlight food insecurity, to call on Americans to take action against food insecurity, and to celebrate our nation’s network of 200 food banks and 60,000 food pantries and meal programs. In recognition of Hunger Action Month, U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (OH-03) said:
“Our country is facing the worst public health crisis in over a century. As a result, some 30 million more Americans, including one in four children, are in jeopardy of going hungry. In short, the COVID-19 Pandemic has only exacerbated food insecurity in America, putting even more strain on food banks. So, it is imperative all of us do our part by making donations and volunteering at local foodbanks like the Mid-Ohio Foodbank to ensure that far fewer children, seniors, veterans, and American families go to bed hungry. Together, we can help feed America.”
