Hunger is an overlooked but very real issue in our communities. You want to help, but may not know how to make the biggest difference in the lives of local families struggling with hunger.
Here are three ways you can take action this Hunger Action Month:
Help us pack over 150,000 lbs of food for our neighbors in need! During your volunteer shift, you will inspect and package fresh produce while enjoying music, answering trivia questions for prizes, and participating in fun raffles!
Volunteer shifts include 7:00-9:00am, 9:30-11:30am, 12:30-2:30pm, and 3:00-5:00pm
Join us on Wednesday September 18 from 4:30 – 6:30pm to celebrate the public “grand opening” of our permanent food pantry space inside our Rockford Center!
Come tour the space, and learn how the Winnebago Community Market has served more than one million meals in the past year to neighbors in our community!
Please RSVP by Friday, September 13 at WCMOpenHouse.eventbrite.com
This is one delicious way to get involved with Hunger Action Month! Visit a participating restaurant and ask your server how they are “Passing the Plate” this September so you can join us in solving hunger.

Every volunteer, every donation, every meal counts as we work together to solve hunger. Learn more and get involved at SolveHungerToday.org/HAM.
