Hunger Action Month at Homestead Gardens

Sep 1st, 2023 - Sep 30th, 2023

 

 

September is Hunger Action Month, a nation-wide campaign to raise awareness and inspire action to alleviate food insecurity in communities across our country. Here in Anne Arundel County, it is estimated that 224,153 people are food insecure and even more in our Delaware communities. A lack of access to food means children go hungry, parents are forced to make difficult financial decisions and families are left stressed and anxious. Hungry children cannot focus at school and have little energy for the activities that feed their brains and bodies. You can help!

Join Homestead Gardens, Anne Arundel County Food Bank as well as Our Daily Bread in a month-long food drive and fundraiser, Bring shelf stable pantry products and baby items to Homestead Gardens Maryland and Delaware locations for donation to families directly in Anne Arundel County as well as Delaware. You can also donate funds to the cause whenever you make a purchase at Homestead Gardens. Simply choose how much you want to donate at the register.
