Today is Hunger Action Day!
On Saturday, July 27, 2013, Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity and Feeding America formally announced a new national partnership designed to improve the fraternity’s food collection programs at over 190 college campuses in the United States.
Since then more than 10.6 million pounds of food have been raised. This equates to nearly 9 million meals for the one in seven Americans facing hunger, including 15 million children.
In our continued support of this partnership and to recognize the great work our organizations do, we are behind Hunger Action Day.
What can’t you do on an empty stomach?
Everyone knows that feeling of an empty stomach. This feeling of running on empty is a reality for 48 million people in the U.S. Without that fuel and nutrition, people — kids especially — don’t have the energy to focus, learn, grow, and ultimately, succeed. Tell your friends and family what you can’t do on an empty stomach.
Write it on a plate, take a selfie, and post to your social media channels with #HungerActionMonth and #LambdaChiAlpha. Don’t forget to tag @FeedingAmerica and @LambdaChiAlpha so that we can share your photo on social media. It’s that easy to help raise awareness for the 1 in 7 people who struggle with hunger across America.
