Raise Your Fork To End Hunger


It’s Hunger Action Month across the country, as food banks and organizations focused on ending hunger seek to raise public awareness of this critical"Raise Your Fork" to end hunger. issue. Here in the Silicon Valley, Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties is encouraging everyone “Raise Your Fork” to take positive action every day of the month to end hunger.

A “30 Ways in 30 Days” calendar provides tangible ways to end hunger, from following Second Harvest online (Oracle is giving a $5 donation for each “like” and follow), to finding out how to organize a “CANstruction” event at work, to donating directly to the charity. According to its website, Second Harvest is feeding 1 in 10 people in the two counties, a noble task that takes cash and plenty of food donations from those of us who have plenty of food in our pantries.

Check out the calendar, and see if you can take at least some of the actions suggested there this month.
