Hunger Action Month is here!   Recently updated !


Feeding America Southwest Virginia and Kroger are joining together to bring awareness to the plight of the more than 144,000 Southwest Virginians who are food insecure – including more than 40,000 children. 

This year, Kroger brings the power of its “Zero Hunger, Zero Waste” initiative as a sponsor of FASWVA’s hunger-fighting activities during Hunger Action Month.

There are lots of ways you can get involved in Hunger Action Month in person or on social media. Join us and help fight hunger in Southwest Virginia!

Take a Plate Selfie

Hunger Action Day®, the second Thursday in September, is a day where efforts across the country are focused for greater impact.

This year, on September 13th, Feeding America Southwest Virginia asks supporters to share what they couldn’t do without adequate nutrition by writing on an empty plate, “On an empty stomach I can’t ______,” and filling in the blank with something they couldn’t achieve without the nutrition we need to thrive.

These photos can be posted to Twitter (@faswva), Instagram (@faswva) and Facebook (@feedingamericaswva) with #HungerActionMonth to join the conversation.
