September is Hunger Action Month

It's the Friday before Labor Day. I'm the last one in the office. So yes, I'm feeling very lazy at the moment. So alas, the most I can motivate to do is to pass along the scoop on one of my favorite causes - The Atlanta Community Food Bank.

Turns out September is Hunger Action Month, so what are you going to do to make sure Atlantans have enough to eat? Simple Abundance classes are one easy, fun and tasty way to help out!

About Hunger Action Month

Hunger Action Month (September) is a national call-to-action and hunger awareness campaign coordinated by Feeding America, the nation’s network of more than 200 food banks. Working in conjunction with Feeding America, the Atlanta Community Food Bank – along with member food banks in cities across the country – is mobilizing the public throughout the month of September to help feed more than 36 million Americans living on the brink of hunger. Metro area residents can take action by visiting the Atlanta Community Food Bank’s 30 Ways in 30 Days calendar at The calendar offers a different hunger-fighting opportunity for each day in September.
