Feeding Westchester

Hunger Action Month 2021

September is Hunger Action Month, and Feeding Westchester encourages everyone — together — to take action to end hunger. 

Food Shouldn't Be an Impossible Choice

Through Feeding America’s nationwide hunger awareness campaign, our goal is to inspire Westchester residents to learn about hunger in their communities and join our mission to nourish our neighbors in the fight against hunger.  

Make the choice to end hunger in your community. Here are three simple ways. 

#GoOrange

Wear orange to show your support during Hunger Action Month. Take a photo to share on social media and tag #FeedingWestchester #HungerActionMonth.

Start a Fundraiser

Becoming a fundraiser means stepping up as a community leader. You will leverage the power of your social network to ensure your neighbors fighting hunger can thrive.

Advocate

For hundreds of thousands of your neighbors in Westchester, a daily meal isn’t a choice between different dishes. It's a choice between food and other crucial needs — like medicine, electricity, or childcare.

You helped us to fill 30 donation bins so far this Hunger Action Month. We’ve doubled our goal! Join us in our mission to fill 60 bins of food donations by the end of September. 

There are 3 ways you can contribute to our new goal. Find them below!  We need and appreciate all donations, but are asking supporters to prioritize fundraisers or monetary donations when possible. Thank you. 

Donate Food

Drop off items during Hunger Action Month at our distribution center, 200 Clearbrook Road, Elmsford, NY every Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Fundraise to Fill

Start a fundraiser to have your network contribute funds to our goal. Every $250 raised fills a food bin for your neighbors fighting hunger in Westchester!
