Observing Hunger Action Month & National Food Safety Month
1 September 2015 |
Two important community celebrations occur in September: Hunger Action Month and National Food Safety Month.
Hunger Action Month is a call to action from Feeding America, asking community members to volunteer and/or donate to their local food bank. Feed America states, “Hunger Action Month is your opportunity to join a movement that has a real and lasting impact on our effort to feed more Americans than ever before.” Learn more by visiting the Hunger Action Month website.
National Food Safety Month (NFSM) was established in 1994 to bring awareness about food safety education. Each year the National Restaurant Association creates a new theme (#LetItFlow2015) and a multitude of educational tools (free training activities, infographics, videos, and posters).
At ICMA food security and safety is one of our main national and international concerns. You can find numerous resources that are in alignment with the goals of both September celebrations by checking out the healthy living and food security topic pages on the Knowledge Network. Here are a few examples of those resources:
