September is Hunger Action Month

Annual Report




This September, join Feeding South Dakota to help raise awareness of the issue of hunger in our state.


Hunger Action Month is a nationwide campaign designed to mobilize the public to take action on the issue of hunger. The campaign’s success is based on public participation over a five week period running from September 1st to September 30th. Our goal during Hunger Action Month is to raise awareness of hunger in all of South Dakota. Take the pledge with Feeding America.
