The goal of our Hunger Action Month project was to gather volunteers to inspect and package food at Feeding Palm Beach County, one of 200 branches of Feeding America. The food that we sorted would be distributed to families in need here in South Florida.
Hunger Action Month is meant to bring awareness to the issue of hunger and encourage action to combat this problem. This issue has become more severe due to the pandemic, so it is important that we work hard to make sure that meals are available to as many people as possible.
We volunteered at Feeding Palm Beach County previously for our Giving November project and we were glad to be able to work with them again! It was a valuable experience that taught us about a problem that affects thousands of families in Florida, and millions more across the country. Thank you to those who volunteered with us, and to Feeding Palm Beach County for giving us this opportunity.
