September is Hunger Action Month

No one person should go hungry.

Access to nutritious food is a fundamental right that lays the foundation for human well-being and potential. Yet, 72,900 people and 1 in 9 children in South Dakota face hunger daily. Joining the nationwide movement to end hunger helps ensure everyone, regardless of race, background or ZIP code, has access to the food and resources needed to thrive.

If we all come together, we can end hunger.

September 15th is Hunger Action Day

Hunger Action Day is dedicated to nation-wide action that brings awareness to our mission. This year, the Corn Palace and the Arc of Dreams are showing their support by by illuminating their structures orange.

You can show your support too! Wear orange on September 15th and use #HungerActionDay when you post your photo on social media. Be sure to share why fighting hunger is important to you and invite your network to take action too.

Ways you can take action

Double Your Donation

During the month of September, our Board of Directors will be matching donations — dollar for dollar! This means every $1 given provides groceries for six meals through our hunger-relief programs.



Hunger Action Month is an opportunity to volunteer and create lasting change. Sorting food, packing boxes, and working Mobile Distributions not only provides immediate assistance but sparks conversations about food insecurity and advocates for those facing hunger.
