Hunger Action Month

September is Hunger Action Month - a time when the Feeding America network and the public come together to raise awareness and inspire action to help people facing the impossible choices of hunger.

Food shouldn't be an impossible choice. Choose to take action!

YOU can make a difference!

During the month of September, people across the South Dakota can get involved in the movement by learning, committing, and speaking up about ways to ending hunger. Feeding South Dakota encourages local businesses, churches, schools and civic groups to participate in some of the following ways:
