Far too often people are unaware that hunger is an issue in their community.  This is why awareness is an important aspect of Hunger Action Month.  This month, take the time to hear more about hunger and share what you've learned.   Here are some activities to get you started: 

Oak Park Public Library has currated a reading list about food insecurity. Spend some family time immersed in these great reading selections. Download and print these gorgeous Hunger Action Month bookmarks to put out at work or in your business to encourage our community to learn more.  Check one out and cross that off your Hunger Action BINGO card (here)

At Beyond Hunger we do more then provide emergency hunger relief-- we offer nutrition education and cooking classes.  Learn how to cook on a budget with affordable and nutritious recipies our dieticians and interns have put together:

  • Healthy Recipes (Watch and follow along from home on our Youtube channel)
  • Recipes 

Tag @GoBeyondHunger with photos of your recipies and cross off another square on your bingo card!


  • Learn what it is like to live off of $4.64 a day.  Take the SNAP Challenge from September 1-7th or all month.  More information here.  If interested in blogging about your experience, contact Lauren.
