HAYS COUNTY — September is Hunger Action Month, when Feeding America’s nationwide network of food banks join together in order to bring awareness to the fight against hunger.
Every individual has the power to make a positive impact and this Hunger Action Month, the Hays County Food Bank invites residents to take action through four key initiatives: Volunteer, Advocate, Donate, and Go orange!

- Advocate: Raise your voice against hunger by visiting www.feedingamerica.org/take-action/advocate to get involved. Engage with your elected officials using resources from Feeding America and Texas, ensuring you’re well-informed and up-to-date. Use your influence on social platforms to shed light on eradicating hunger in our communities, fostering an environment where everyone has access to nutritious food.
