September is Hunger Action Month, and we want to thank you for your advocacy efforts on behalf of food insecure families in our community! Earlier this week, we asked you to make a phone call to your local congress person as a part of Feeding America's national call-in day to voice opposition to cuts to SNAP! Thank you, if you were one of those voices- your advocacy makes a difference!

Please join us next Thursday for this very special event.
