September is Hunger Action Month

Everyone needs nutritious food to thrive. Yet, tens of millions of people in the United States - including 24,270 individuals and 6,060 children in the Central Rappahannock River Region - face hunger. 

This September, join the Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank, the movement to end hunger. Your voice, actions, and commitment will help ensure every community has the food they need to thrive. Because when people are fed, their futures are nourished. 

Every action - big or small - is one step closer to an America where no one is hungry. Join the nationwide movement to end hunger by donating, volunteering, or advocating.

Tuesday, September 19: National Voter Registration Day
According to U.S. Census data from 2020, as many as 1 in 4 eligible Americans are not registered to vote. National Voter Registration Day is a nonpartisan civic holiday to increase voter registration. Take a moment to make sure you are registered to vote and check out these resources to help get your friends, family, and broader community registered to vote. Together, we can vote out hunger in local, state, and federal elections!
