Speak up! Fill the plate: Tell Congress why hunger matters

Take action now and send your Member of Congress a virtual paper plate. It’s a visible, virtual reminder that the people they represent want to make sure their neighbors can put food on the table.

What a Hunger Action Day it has been for us and the rest of the Feeding America network!

Among today's highlights, we are proud that one of our partner pantries KG Love Thy Neighbor was selected for a Great Pantry Makeover by Food Lion. So, we had the privilege of delivering a new refrigerator, shelving, and food supplies purchased by Food Lion. We also got to see the Love Thy Neighbor crew in action as they started to transform their pantry storage space to accommodate their new equipment and food supplies.

At Spotsylvania Towne Centre, we enjoyed engaging the public with Thunder 104.5 WGRX and encountered some folks who were willing to share with us what they imagine or know the issue of hunger feels like and what they think are some actions that can be taken to improve the situation in our community.

Also, our dedicated staff highlighted hunger by sporting the color orange in some fun and different ways. Orange is the traditional color associated with Hunger Action Day and Hunger Action month to draw attention to the issue.

Orange you glad we shared some of our Hunger Action Day news with you?

Thanks to a proclamation issued by Fredericksburg, Virginia Mayor Mary Katherine Greenlaw and presented to our President & CEO Dan Maher during this week's City Council meeting, today is Hunger Action Day in Fredericksburg, linking us to the rest of the Feeding America network in specially highlighting this day within Hunger Action Month as a day to draw attention to the issue of hunger in our midst.

With 1 in 12 members of our overall regional population not having adequate food to lead an active and healthy lifestyle and 1 in 10 children in our community in that situation, we invite you to join us in highlighting the sad issue of hunger today.

So, put on some orange clothing or grab some orange bling to adopt the color of Hunger Action Month and Day as an accessory today. We're sure you'll draw attention to yourself and that will allow you to tell others why you are passionate about the cause of hunger relief!

Of course, visiting our website at https://www.fredfood.org/ to volunteer with us or to make a donation are other great ways to mark Hunger Action Day with us!

We are honored that Mayor Mary Katherine Greenlaw issued a city proclamation designating Friday, September 17 as Hunger Action Day during this week's Fredericksburg City Council meeting! We will be joining communities around the nation that day in highlighting the ongoing need for immediate hunger relief and long-term remedies to the underlying issues that contribute to hunger. With 1 in 12 members of our community facing the hard choices about how to balance their budgets to afford food, medicine, transportation, housing, etc., we hope Hunger Action Day will inspire more people to recognize the hardships of hunger and commit to joining us as volunteers, donors, advocates, and supporters!

Network Partner Spotlight: KG Love Thy Neighbor Pantry in King George.

Shout out to this extra special pantry! They have been one of the few to bring neighbors INSIDE their location and have them shop. They have an enormous variety of pantry items, meat, dairy, fresh produce, household items, and books!!

Each week, Love Thy Neighbor serves approximately 75 families and hopes soon to expand its resources. They plan to set up a library and computer room, where folks can take online training, print application forms, create a resume, apply for jobs, or learn basic computer skills. They want to offer classes on healthy cooking, budgeting, mental health, caring for an elderly parent, and other topics of community interest – in partnership with local agencies that can help people access additional resources.

Food insecurity is complex, and we are proud to partner with these community innovators! Thanks, Love Thy Neighbor!
