September isn't any old month for us at the Food Bank. It's Hunger Action Month--the time when all Feeding America food banks across the nation ask everyone in America to take action to fight hunger in their community, all month long. Hunger Action Month is your opportunity to join a movement that has a real and lasting impact on our effort to feed more Americans than ever before. Whether it’s by advocating and raising awareness, making donations, or volunteering, you can find the way that’s right for you to make a difference during Hunger Action Month.
For the past 8 years, the Atlanta Community Food Bank has been a proud beneficiary of the Kaiser Permanente Corporate Run/Walk & Fitness Program (KPCRW). 2014 marks the 32nd consecutive year for this unique workplace-based fitness program and culminating 5K through downtown Atlanta. It is the largest program of its kind and attracts more than 17,000 runners and walkers from more than 400 corporate and community teams. This high energy event creates an environment complete with camaraderie among co-workers.
August is halfway over which means we’re almost to Hunger Action Month!
