Hunger Action Month: September

September is Hunger Action Month! Every year, Feeding America leads this campaign to raise awareness and inspire the public to take action on behalf of people facing the impossible choice of hunger.

Did you know that 48% of all households in Jackson either live in poverty or earn just above the federal poverty level but not enough to make ends meet?

This month, we invite you to join us in the fight against hunger! You can take action by donating, volunteering, or participating in an upcoming event.

Here’s how you can take action:

  • Donate online – Donations can be directed to a specific ministry by writing a note in the comment section.
