September is
hunger action month

You might not realize it, but 1 in 5 children and 1 in 6 adults in Oklahoma face the risk of going to bed hungry. September is Hunger Action Month! Join us in the fight against hunger by donating, volunteering, or advocating.


Everyone needs nutritious food to thrive.  People are working hard to provide for themselves and their families.


Every action - big or small - is one step closer to a community where no person goes hungry.


When people are fed, futures are nourished.

What is Hunger Action Month?

Hunger Action Month is a national Feeding America campaign to inspire people to take action and raise awareness of hunger in the United States. The Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma will shine a light on the problem here at home as well as feature our successes during this special month. September 15th is also Hunger Action Day!
