As rates of food insecurity continue rise, school meals are more important than ever.

Last night, my family was choosing what to have for dinner. We talked through endless options. We could make pasta, but we couldn’t decide between brands of sauce we had. We could eat out, but we couldn’t decide where we all would enjoy. We ended up raiding our pantry for what each of us wanted and made four separate items to meet our individual tastes. This happens more often than I’ d like to admit. The point is, though, that we had choices. Lots and lots of great choices.

For millions of people in America, a daily meal is a choice between food and other critical needs
like medicine, utilities, or childcare. There is no luxury of what to eat. The choice is IF they eat.

September is Hunger Action Month®. A time to come together to take action to end hunger. At Dairy Council of California, we’re making the choice to encourage you to take action to end hunger. You can choose to donate or advocate. You can choose to volunteer or raise awareness. Below are a few simple links to do more:

You have a choice. Choose to end hunger. Take additional action at feedingamerica.org/hungeractionmonth.
