Upcoming Hunger Action Week aims to inform communities about hunger

February 22nd, 2012 · No Comments

The United Way of King County is sponsoring Hunger Action Week in March in order to bring more awareness to hunger issues in our area. United Way is asking, “community members, schools, neighborhood associations, as well as businesses to participate in the conversation of hunger,” writes Morgan Winkler from the organization.

Winkler writes:

Once community members visit our page they will see other ways to get involved including volunteer opportunities (helping out with a food security survey in the Rainier Valley), participating in the Hunger Challenge (eating breakfast, lunch, and dinner, off of $7 a day—maximum amount someone can receive on food stamps), and/or hosting a dinner with friends, family, and/or neighbors and talking about food (if people choose this option they will be entered to win a free catered after-hours dinner at the Microsoft Store in University Village!).

The Hunger Action Week starts March 19. To sign up to volunteer, visit United Way’s website about the event.
