September is Hunger Action Month. Never before has this emphasis been as urgent or well-timed. It is purposed to raise awareness of the need to dedicate more resources and attention to hunger issues.
Three Square creatively engages our community year-round to solve hunger. Normally, September brings a 30-foot plate in our warehouse that the community fills with food. To be safe and responsible, we are going virtual this year.
With great urgency, we ask everyone to help through threesquare.org/HAM in order to engage, inform and donate to meet the 57% increase in food insecurity here in Southern Nevada. With your help, we can source the nutritious food tens of thousands of people need.
Although the COVID-19 crisis has dealt a swift blow to our community’s economic health, together, we will rise above and overcome challenges stymieing our road to recovery.
Many of you helped build this amazing food bank, and many more help sustain it. On behalf of our hungry neighbors, thank you for responding and lifting your voice.
